Drop Off/Pick Up Rules

IMPORTANT!  All drop-offs/pick-ups are along the “loading dock” between Ridgeway and Charles Road.  The parking lot is a fire lane and is closed to traffic.  It is reserved for staff parking ONLY.

 

As a note, although Capistrano USD is a public school district, its property is not open to the public at all times.  Signage is posted prominently at the entrance to the lot and written procedures are available in the Malcom Handbook on our website above.  According to Penal Code, the school has the authority to regulate exit and entry, especially at pick up and drop off times, to ensure student and staff safety.  Thank you for using the Loading Dock and for not entering the school parking lot, especially when there is lots of foot traffic.  Safety is always our #1 concern.
