Welcome Back to School!

New to John Muir 2014-2015


As you will see upon returning to our campus, there are some significant changes on our blacktop and parking lots.  These changes have been implemented for our students with the primary purpose of Student Safety.  Please see below for information regarding these changes:


Parent Parking and Student Pick up and Drop off:  

Prior to this school year, there were very limited parent parking spaces.  This year,  the lower parking lot (by Kindergarten) is now designated for parent parking only.  THIS IS NOT A DROP OFF OR PICK UP ZONE.

  • Parents will be limited to a RIGHT TURN ONLY during the hours of 7:30-8:30 am and 2:30-3:15 pm.

  • We ask that drivers do not park cars when dropping off or picking up children.  

  • Please have your child ready to be dropped off in the morning and continue to circle the route until your child is visible for pick up in the afternoon. This procedure is the same as last year.

  • Please DO NOT USE the upper parking lot (by the playground) for drop off and pick up as this can be very dangerous for our students!

  • Go With the Flow:  In an effort to promote traffic safety and reduce traffic congestion along Vista Way during school pick-up times, the John Muir Elementary Safety Committee and the City of Martinez has established the following traffic circulation pattern:  Approach the school from Howe Rd., turn let on Vista Way, continue to Pine St. A coned lane will be created along the front of the school for drop off and pick up.  


Single Point of Entry:

In the past, there were several open points of entry into our school, compromising student safety.  Our goal is to have one main point of entry into JME at the front of the school to better ensure the safety for our students.  Openings or gates behind the school will now be closed off.  I realize this may cause an inconvenience for some families, however, please understand that safety comes first.  


Teacher and Visitor Parking:

The upper lot is designated primarily for staff members and Woodbridge.  Most teacher parking will be on the closed off lot by the playground.  


New Playground Structure!

The most exciting new change you will see is our wonderful new playground structure.  We can’t wait to see our students enjoying it!
