Parking Lot

Entrance to the Tulita Parking Lot is off of Avenue H. Exit is onto Prospect Ave. 

Visitors may pull in and turn left and park in any open space. Please only park in the "30 Minute" space if you will be on site for a short period of time.

Staff parking is to the right of the entrance.

Please do not park and leave your vehicle in the red lane. The red lane is for emergencies and Valet. 

Many visitors park along the surrounding streets; please note the street cleaning schedule.

Arrival Procedures - Drop Off

1st-5th grade families may use the Valet service between 8:00-8:15am. See Valet details on the bottom of this page. 

Kinder families walk their child up to the KA or KB classroom at 8:00.

TK families walk their child up to the blue gate at 8:00. 

All families may park legally in the parking lot or off campus and walk their child through the grey gate and to the classroom.

All families are encouraged to walk to school! We have Walk to School Wednesdays and Walking School Bus routes on Monday and Wednesdays every week. 

If you are volunteering or have a previously scheduled appointment, please visit to the office, sign in, and wear a Visitor badge. 

Dismissal Procedures - Pick Up

Pick-up times:

Grades 1 and 2 dismiss at 2:25pm (1:15pm on Wednesdays)

Grades 3 - 5 dismiss at 2:35pm (1:30 pm on Wednesdays)

Students who are picked up on foot will be brought out to front grass area near the Kindergarten buildings (blue gate). Parents may pick up their child from this area.

Students who are picked up in the Valet are brought out to front grass area along the parking lot. See Valet details on the right side of this page.         

Staff ensures that no child leaves the walking or valet area without a parent or guardian.

Children attending CDC, Rec, or an after school class will head directly to their destination after school.


The Tulita Valet offers an efficient, curbside drop-off and pick-up for our 1st-5th grade students. Please review the following procedures to make the process a safe for you, the students, and our great volunteers:

-       Pull into the parking lot, stay to the right of the orange cones, using only the curbside (valet) red lane.

-       Pull forward as far as you can in the driveway as often as possible.

-       Left lane is not for drop off; use it to pull into a parking space or drive through to exit.

-       Do not drop off your child from the left lane. It is unsafe for children to cross in front of moving vehicles.

AM Drop Off: Begins at 8:00am

-       Pull forward in the valet lane and allow your child to exit the vehicle onto the sidewalk. Do not get out of the car as this will slow down the entire process.

PM Pick Up: Students using the Valet will be waiting on the front lawn.

-       Remind your child to be on the lookout for your vehicle. Place a placard with your child's name in the passenger side dash.

-       Pull forward as far as possible in the valet lane, give your child’s name to the valet; the valet will page your child and assist in loading.

-Please be on the lookout for pedestrians and proceed with caution.

-Please avoid texting or talking on your cell phone while in the Tulita parking lot.

Dismissal Update

Important Safety Update for Dismissal

If you pick up your child near the Kindergarten building at dismissal time please read this update.

We need your HELP in order to keep all children safe during dismissal time:

  1. Please keep an eye on your child; they should be with you at all times.
  2. The children may NOT climb on walls, trees or ledges.
  3. The children may NOT run or bike on sidewalks.
  4. All children need to keep their hands and feet to themselves. One of our school rules is “hands and feet to self” because this prevents accidental or intentional injury. Please do not let your children wrestle or jump on each other while on school grounds.
  5. Supervise your children at all times.

Thanks for your help in keeping kids safe at school!
