Laguna Road Parking Guidelines and Procedures


Parking at every school is a challenge.  At Laguna Road, we are constantly seeking to ensure safe egress and regress for every student.  After a study in the Spring of 2017, the following are our rules for parking and traffic at Laguna Road. There are no exceptions to these rules, as we seek to ensure the safety of every child.


Parking

  1. The upper parking lot is reserved for Staff members only. There is no parking in stalls marked “Staff”--not only do we have a high number of employees, we also have frequent staff from the Fullerton School District come to visit our school, and it is critical to leave these spots open
  2. The lower parking lot is reserved for parents.
  3. We recommend parking in the surrounding neighborhood, and during drop-off and pick-up, that you park and walk your child to the crosswalk or to school.
  4. Parking on the west side of the lower parking lot is not allowed between 8:00-8:30 and 2:30-3:00. We use this as a lane for loading passengers
