School Zone Safety Reminders


Dear John F. Kennedy Families: 

In response to concerns regarding driving behavior, you may see school resource officers in front of the school during morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up. Many students walk or bike to and from school; depending on traffic and weather conditions, they can sometimes be difficult to see from inside a vehicle. As a reminder, be sure to drop off and pick up either in the west parking lot (adjacent to Florin Road) or in front of the school (Gloria Drive) where permitted. The east parking lot is reserved for faculty, staff, and school buses; please do not use the lot as a pull-through. 
A word of caution: it is illegal to stop, drive, drop off, or pick up in a center turn lane. Also, an illegal U-turn on Gloria Drive (in front of the school) may result in a ticket that carries a fine upward of $375. Don’t make that mistake! 

Thank you for helping to keep students safe.
