Thank You for Driving Safely
Though Lake Street is closed, there are still cars driving down our block. You are permitted to drive on the block to pick up or drop off your child. Please be mindful of cars and pedestrians alike as you exit our loading zone.
If you arrive early, we appreciate you taking a lap around the block or even parking for a walking pickup. We try to keep our loading zone free for two cars at a time and move everyone in and out as efficiently as possible. If you are the parent of a middle school student, you may make a plan to pick up your child at the corner of 24th and Lake. This allows you space without double parking in the street, which can make it difficult for cars exiting the loading zone as well as pedestrians who have the right of way.
Thank you for keeping our community safe and for modeling safe choices for our Kittredge kids.

Classroom Outings & Events
Have an idea for a fun event for your kid's class? The KPA has a budget of $200 for each class for parents to organize out-of-school events on weekends or afternoons. Park playdates with pizza and beach potlucks have been fun socials for the kids. Contact your class parent if you want to brainstorm ideas!
