SI Traffic and Parking Plan
We have implemented a new southbound direction only procedure with respect to student drop off and pick up. These procedures are implemented for student and pedestrian safety. The plan is designed to eliminate double parking, reduce traffic back-up on Sunset Blvd., and prevent car accidents and injuries caused by backups and students jaywalking and/or darting between traffic.
Please follow directions given by the SI guards. Do not double park in traffic lanes, stop in the cross-walks or bus zone, as these actions back up traffic and are prohibited by law.
OFFICIAL WHITE ZONE NO STOPPING
7:30-9:30 AM and 2:30-6:30 PM: We require families approaching school whether from the North, South, East Bay or San Francisco to use white curb zone in the southbound direction only between Quintara and Rivera. Move forward to the top of the lane and have your students prepared to enter/exit your vehicle promptly. Parents and visitors who have business with the school may park in the white zone between the hours of 9:30 AM – 2:30 PM.
Double parking or stopping in the traffic lane are prohibited for drop off/ pick up of students between Pacheco and Riviera on 37th Avenue. Students will be subject to dentition if observed exiting double parked vehicles and/or jaywalking along 37th Avenue.
KEEP TRAFFIC MOVING
If you find insufficient room to pull into the drop-off zones, please drive around the block and re-enter the drop-off zones when space is available. Do not make U-turns along 37th Avenue or at the intersections.
AFTERNOON CO-CURRICULAR PICK UP at 6 PM
Drivers are to approach school via the southbound direction only between Quintara and Rivera Streets. Move forward and enter your vehicle promptly. Do not wait or park in Bus Zone. Buses used for commuting, practices, games and retreats need to be able to park in the bus zone.
Student parking on 37th Avenue between Pacheco and Quintara Streets is prohibited. All student drivers must register for parking permit and display them on their driver-side front windshields. This has proven to be beneficial in identifying student cars about to be towed for illegal parking and particularly blocking our neighbor’s driveways. The average cost of a citation and tow is $600.00.
Driving to school is a privilege; therefore student parking permits are required regardless where you park, inside the SI garage or on the street. Do not illegally park in handicap zones or no-parking zones in the garage.
All streets adjacent to the school campus are designated as 15 MPH SCHOOL ZONE when students are present. Please watch your speed!
Thank you for your cooperation!
