Thanks to William for sharing this on our FB Friday Free For All Post – it’s a great reminder for us all!

REMINDER. The white zone in front of the school is for DROP OFF and PICK UP. It is NOT parking space for you to go into the school or sit in your car with your face in your phone while other parents are trying to drop off their kids. Not only is this selfish and inconsiderate, it’s a safety hazard, contributes to traffic and is subject to citation.

The traffic engineer and chief of police are authorized to place curb markings to indicate parking or standing regulations. Curb markings shall have the following meanings:

(a)   Red means no stopping, standing or parking at any time except as permitted by the Vehicle Code, and except that a bus may stop in a red zone marked or signed as a bus zone.

(b)  Yellow means no stopping, standing or parking at any time between seven a.m. and six p.m. of any day, except Sundays and holidays, for any purpose other than the loading of passengers or materials.
