Please follow this Safe Drop Off link
and review the process for a safe student drop off in the morning.
We have observed a couple of close calls during the drop off or pick up of our Valley Students. We are asking that everyone please review the process in place and follow those guidelines when dropping their child or children off in the morning.
Parents are permitted to park in the Visitor spaces in the parking lot in front of the school, on Bowron Road, and in the Boys’ and Girls’ Club parking lot adjacent to the school. The Staff Parking lot is for teachers and staff only. Unattended vehicles parked in yellow zones will receive a parking citation. There is no parking allowed in the red zones at any time.
