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.
