URGENT STUDENT PARKING INFO: Please do not park in the parking lot
of the Valley Community Church behind the parking structure off Del Valle.
Because so many students are parking there, church staff, preschool parents and
people attending church functions have no room to park. No one wants to tow
unauthorized cars in the church parking lot, but if the situation does not
improve that may be the only alternative. The church built the parking
structure in a joint venture with the school district and allows us to use it during
the week. Out of respect for them and their generosity, please park only in the
student parking lot off Santa Rita Road, on top of the structure or along the
south fence in the Del Valle parking lot. The church community is a good
neighbor to us; let’s be good neighbors to them."
