Pick up and drop off at Anza

TEDDE/Kindergarten Students:  All TK/Kindergarten students will enter and exit through the Kindergarten gate by the main entrance. Kindergarten and TEDDE parents need to park and walk in the crosswalks to bring their student to the Kindergarten gate. Avoid using the valet area ( RED Zone) along the front of the school for drop off or pick up at any time during the school year. This allows our youngest students to understand the drop off and pick up process before using the valet system in later grades. All TEDDE/Kindergarten students are picked up at the Kindergarten gate.

Students in grades 1-5: Enter and exit the school through the blue double doors by the Guerrero Multi-purpose center. If your child is walking home, they must use the Pedestrian Walkway and crosswalks on the surrounding streets.

Driving: Students in grades 1-5 being dropped off and picked up by car will enter the one-way ENTRANCE ONLY driveway at 123rd and Hindry. Follow the traffic pattern set up by the yellow barrier. Please pull as far forward as possible to the drop off area before unloading and loading passengers. Have your student packed up and ready to exit the car, avoid retrieving belongings from the trunk as it may cause delays. At dismissal, if your child is not at the "waiting" area, please exit and circle back around to the ENTRANCE ONLY driveway. Avoid honking your horn at any time in front of the school and do not leave your car unattended while in the valet line.
If parking on Hindry Avenue or any neighboring streets and walking to meet your child, please use the Pedestrian Walkway or other designated crosswalks. 

Riding Bikes: Fourth and fifth grade students riding bikes to and from school must walk their bikes while on campus, and proceed directly to the bike rack.  

4th & 5th Grade Fast Pass: Fourth and fifth grade students will be picked up each day on the Wiseburn Child Development Center side of the valet. Parents of fourth and fifth graders should line up by pulling all the way forward in front of the WCDC. (Fourth and fifth grade students with younger siblings will sit with them and be picked up in the main valet line.)

To all parents: thank you for following all traffic rules and reminding your childcare provider of the rules as well. Observing these rules ensures your child’s safety. As adults, it is important for us all to model the correct way.

Please discuss with your child the importance of observing street signals, crossing streets safely, crossing only in the crosswalks, and not talking to strangers. Please report any suspicious or dangerous activity to the school office or the South Los Angeles Sheriff's Station at (323) 820-6700.
