  • Please be courteous to other drivers and adhere to the parking lot and drop-off protocol.

  • Please only park in unmarked stalls if you are walking your child onto campus.

  • Please use the marked crosswalks when arriving and leaving campus. 

  • Drop-off line is next to the curb ONLY. 

  • Please drive as far forward as possible before letting your child out of the car. 

  • There is NO drop off at the "island" in the front parking lot.

  • Do NOT call to your child to cross the parking lot or driveway to get to your car. 

  • Please walk up to the sidewalk to escort your child back to your car if you are in the parking lot

Grade Level Recycle Program

Benedict Grade Level RECYCLE PROGRAM EVERY Friday MORNING - 07:30 am – 07:50 am

We will be collecting plastic bottles and aluminum cans, that have the CA CRV or CA CASH label on them at a convenient drive-thru drop off location in the parking lot (we cannot recycle any glass containers).

 

Please have the grade level legibly noted on the outside of every bag. Grade level pound totals are tallied by our volunteer recycle team and announced. Don’t forget to bring in your newspapers, too!
