Driving in the Parking Lot

Parking at San Luis Rey can be a challenge!  The best way to deal with that challenge is to be on time and patient. 

The parking lot at San Luis Rey has a marked entrance and exit for one-way traffic to make a loop.

The drop off window is 8:25-8:55.  Students dropped off after 8:55 are likely to be counted as tardy.

The pick up window for Kinder is 2:50-3:05.  Students not picked up by 3:05 will be walked to the office to call home.

The pick up window for 1st - 5th is 3:35-3:55.  Students not picked up by 3:55 will be walked to the office to call home.  The office closes promptly, so PLEASE be on time as there is no one to supervise children after that time.

Here are some reminders:

  • Please drive slowly at all times while in the school zone.  There are many children walking in crosswalks and crossing streets.  Their safety is a priority.
  • Please always use the crosswalks only when crossing any streets in the school zone. 
  • DO NOT use the staff parking lot for student drop offs.
  • DO NOT use the bus lane at any time (even when it is empty).
  • Please use the drive through lanes to exit the school zone.  Do not turn around in the middle of the street.
  • There is only one way to enter the school zone and one way to exit.  Please always and at all times of the day follow the arrows for entering and exiting the school zone.
  • Please share arrival and dismissal information with any adult that will pick up or drop off your child.

REMEMBER:  Red curbs mean NO PARKING so do NOT LEAVE YOUR CAR! To do so creates unpleasant and unsafe blocks to the flow of traffic.  Trying to locate drivers distracts teachers on duty which means they cannot properly supervise children.  We bring the students to YOU.  Additionally, you may be subject to being ticketed.


Safety is one of our highest priorities for everyone here at San Luis Rey.  We truly appreciate your patience and support as we implement changes in our arrival and dismissal process in efforts to ensure the safety of the entire Garrison gator family.  Please keep these safety tips in mind each day as you arrive and depart the school zone:

  • Please drive slowly
  • Please DO NOT drop your students off in the staff parking area.
  • Please DO NOT enter the first driveway in the parking area (even if you are parking). Always use the drive thru lane!
  • Please DO NOT exit out of the second driveway as you exit the staff parking lot. Use the drive thru lane!
  • Please DO NOT turn around in the middle of the street.
  • Please always use the crosswalks when crossing the streets.
  • Please DO NOT use the Bus Only lane at any time (even if it is empty)!
  • Please share this information with any person that may drop off or pick up your child.

Garrison Staff


Parent parking at San Luis Rey is limited by the small parking lot.  If you must park, please follow these guidelines:

PLEASE arrive early when coming to the school and remember to park safely:  in the marked parking stalls only and on the street, avoiding the red zones.  There is NO PARKING at any time in the drop-off and pick-up lanes.  Also, please DO NOT park in the carport areas of the apartments, even for a minute.  Parking in any unauthorized areas can lead to a parking violation and fine.  

Please note that there is no parking in the upper staff lot, even to drop off students in the BASE before-school program.  

Thank you for your cooperation, which helps to keep us all safe.
