Welcome to Garfield Public Preschool Annex3

Reminders About Drop Off & Pick Up • Escuela del Sol Montessori

Dear Parents and/or Guardians:

Please be advised that beginning Wednesday, September 20th we will be transitioning to our “Drop and Go” drop off procedure. Moving forward, parents are encouraged to drive up to the front entrance of the building, where we will be escorting students out of the vehicle and into the school building. Please see the procedure below. Parents will no longer be permitted to enter the school building with their child. If you do not want staff members taking your child out of your vehicle, you still have the option to walk your child to the doorStudents who walk to school will line up by the front door where they will be escorted into the building and taken to the classroom by preschool staff members.  


Please be aware that this is for drop off only in the morning. Parents will enter the building at the end of the school day to pick up their child.  This will provide parents with the opportunity to speak to your child’s teacher, see your child’s schoolwork in the classroom, and to speak with other members of our school community if need be.


  • There is no parking by the medical clinic. This is for the clinic only. The clinic has contacted the Garfield Police Department and have requested anyone parking on their property be given a ticket.
  • No parking in fire lanes. This is not only illegal, but it is a hazard for students and parents dropping off and picking up.
  • Parking for GPPA 3 is either in the lot behind the baseball field or on the street.


1. Enter the school Parking lot by the Babe Ruth Field off Outwater Lane.  The parking lot by the Medical Center will be closed to traffic. You will not be able to enter the school lot from this access point. The gate for through traffic from the medical clinic will be closed and you will be required to wait until all vehicles from the Outwater Lane entrance have made their way through the line.

2. Proceed through the parking lot to the front of the school building. Greeters will be waiting by the front entrance to give you directions.

3.  Do not exit your vehicle at any time, as it slows down the flow of traffic. Please have all your child’s belongings at your child’s feet so we can take them with your child when we take them from the vehicle.

Please be sure to have your child wear the nametag provided by the classroom teacher.  This allows staff to ensure that they make it to the appropriate classroom and helps us to get to know everyone’s name.
