Attention Parents of Students with Special Needs!

During the CAC meeting Thursday, May 19, the SELPA Director came and discussed access to the CAC website via links to each school site.  Please click on the link below to gain a better understanding of what the CAC is all about, or answers to your other questions. We are all in this together, in supporting every child in his/her journey though life and education. Special thanks to our parents who shared this link with our administration so that we can help one another. Feel free to let Mrs. Harris know that you'd like to become more involved, and attend future CAC meetings.  We are also happy to get the word out for our children.

Traffic Safety Dropping Off & Picking Up Outside Main Office at Peterson

MORNING DROP OFF – Buses are to stay in line with the parents and wait their turn to get into the parking lot.  The safety of students, staff and parents comes before bus schedules.  This arrangement has been mediated by the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety. Please pull as far forward as you can.

AFTERNOON PICK UP – Parents often arrive early and beginning lining up to get their students which causes a backup on Rosalia.  Buses and vehicles that want to pass through are allowed to go around the stopped cars and enter the parking lot. There are not staff and students at this time, and parents should be in their vehicles, so the safety issue is not there.  Once the bell rings, buses and vehicles need to wait in line like everyone else until they reach the parking lot.  The safety of the students, staff and parents comes back into play when the dismissal bell rings. Please pull as far forward as you can.


You may also drop off or pick up your child in the gym parking lot. 

For more traffic safety around Peterson information, please see the Traffic Safety Letter from SVDP with map in the Parent Resources locker to the left, and the Traffic Safety page under the Our School page.

If you have questions or concerns about drop off or pick up, please contact Vice Principal Andy Masur.
