Measure E Renovation Update


Posted November 2017

  • Phase 1 projected to begin November 6th - mid December
  • Phase 1 encompasses expansion of staff parking lot and placement of 12 bungalows
  • No student drop-off on 5th street during phase 1
  • ONLY Staff parking will be temporarily relocated onsite near the northeast side of the campus



Posted December 2017

  • January 8, 2018 teachers will be relocated to the bungalow classrooms.  See map above for classroom locations.
  • On morning drop-off, Kinder Families can congregate near bungalows 109 & 110.  Please avoid parking on the neighborhood side on 5th street.
  • All students in grades 1st through 5th must use the valet drop-off service on Silvera.  Fifth street is a cul-de-sac and not conducive for dropping off students.  Kindergarten has been added to this side of the campus and the probability of more traffic is a real factor and cause unnecessary congestion.  Please keep our students' safety first!



Posted February 2018

  • Staff parking lot scheduled to be completed in February.
  • Ongoing demolition of building A
  • Installation of basketball courts and tetherball courts near quad area
  • Removal of some sections of the fencing once parking lot and basketball courts are completed.


Please drive carefully and be mindful of our students' safety at ALL times.
