DROP OFFS AND PICK UPS
Drive around the school in a clockwise direction. Drop and pick up students at the marked, designated areas on Norvell and Lawrence. For student safety, and to improve traffic flow, drop students on the school side of the street. Please refrain from dropping students directly in front of the school on Donal Avenue. In the mornings and afternoons, Donal Avenue is used by AC Transit and other buses, therefore, it must be kept clear so that the buses can make their stops.
Except for 1 or 2 lonely short-term spaces, there is no parking on the school side of Donal Avenue. The school side of Donal Avenue must be kept clear for AC Transit and other bus use. Please park legally on Lawrence, Gladys or Norvell Streets. PLEASE consider parking a few blocks away and walking to the school. It helps to balance the neighborhood congestion.
Please respect our neighborhood and our neighbors. Please refrain from blocking any driveways …. even for a minute … and always follow traffic rules and regulations.
AC Transit runs dedicated routes to and from Richmond. These routes run only on school days Monday to Friday and the schedules are timed to match the hours of local schools and operate only when schools are in session. Even though these buses are specific to school schedules, they are open to all passengers at regular fare. Find routes here! 667 668 675
