• ATS Test

    We are pleased to announce that we have an onsite testing date for the Sacramento State ATS test.  Students who take the test will qualify to take Summer classes at Sac State.  Students must be 4th through 8th grade to be eligible for classes.  The test will take place in the MP room on February 23, at 3:30pm. 

     We are awaiting registrations forms from ATS.  Families will be notified when forms are available to pick up in the office.  If you would like to sign up now, we will send the form home when it arrives.  The testing fee  is $15, and should be brought to the proctor on the day of the test.  You can access more information about the ATS program at

  • Drop Off & Pick Up Procedures

    Arrival Process

    *Unsupervised students should not be on campus before 8:15 a.m.

    Club M is available from 7:00 to 8:15 a.m. and students signed up for this program need to be signed in at Club M located in the MP Room.

    The drop off loop for K through 3rd grade students is on Kermit Lane at the front entrance of the school.  A staff member will be in the loop 8:15-8:30 to welcome and assist the students arriving.  

    The drop off loop for 4th through 8th grade students is through the parking lot entrance on Kermit Lane.  A staff member will be by the stairs 8:15-8:30 to welcome the students arriving. 

    Please note the entrances are one way.

    Students arriving after 8:30 (8:15 for Middle School) must go to the office for a tardy pass.  

    Please do not double park or leave your car unattended in the loop.  The front loop is a fire lane.


    The parking lot is intended for staff only.  Please park on the street if you need to leave your vehicle.


    Dismissal Process

    To facilitate the dismissal process and for your convenience, we ask parents to use the car loop.  Once a teacher sees a parent at the car loop, the child will be called to go to the car.  The dismissal schedule is as follows:


    Front Loop Kindergarten 2:00 p.m.

    Front Loop 6-9 Classes 3:00 p.m.

    Parking Lot Loop 9-12 Classes 3:00 p.m.

    Back Gate (catwalk located on Linda Sue Ln and Link Dr) 3:00 p.m.

    The back gate will be closed at 3:15 p.m.  Any students not picked up by 3:15 will go to the office.


    Parents should stay in their vehicles when using the car loops.  Simply drive up the loop and your child will be called to the car.  Please remember to keep the carline flowing.  If you need to exit your vehicle, please park on the street and walk in.  Please do not double park.

    Our 3:00 pm loop tends to be our most congested time.  With this in mind, it is preferred that drivers picking up their child at this time enter the front loop by turning right.

     All visitors/parents may park at the street.  The parking lot is reserved for the staff.  Please remember that our school is located in a residential area - drive safely, be respectful of our neighbors and obey the speed limit.

  • Drop-off/Pick-up Loop

    Parents, please be mindful of etiquette in our loop. Please be kind, respectful and helpful. Assume best intentions. Children are watching our behavior. Being gracious and courteous, even if it appears that someone else isn’t, is always what we hope adults will model for our children. The loop is at its busiest between 2:55 and 3:10. Waiting until 3:10 to come to loop will help with congestion.
