Welcome to John Muir Elementary!
Parking Lot Safety
Parking Lot Procedures and Guidelines: The long yellow curb on the right side affords parents the opportunity to pull up so the student may enter the car via the sidewalk. The parent may then pull into the left lane to exit the parking lot. As a car moves to the left lane, the vehicles in the right lane pull forward. A few parking spaces are available in the parking lot. Some parents choose to park and walk across the parking lot cross walk and pick up their child to personally escort him/her. Students are not allowed to cross without their parent/guardian.
