On behalf of Starr King’s Traffic Safety Committee, welcome to the new school year!
We remind returning parents and welcome new families to Starr King’s school valet initiative. Starr King’s campus is a hubbub of activities in the morning. On any given school day, there are several school buses, a MUNI bus stop, food pantry pickups, a public health center, pedestrians, and neighborhood commuters all competing for very limited space on the Wisconsin Street side of campus. It is virtually impossible for commuting parents to park, walk their child on campus, and leave their cars without disrupting the flow of traffic.
To alleviate morning traffic conditions, we encourage parents to carpool, use the school bus (with stops in SOMA, Mission, Bernal and Bayview), use MUNI (the 10, 19, or 48), use the walking school bus, or walk if you live close by. Info on these options is here.
If you do need to drive your kids to school, we encourage you to use the school valet. This is a volunteer parent initiative that only works if we all do our part. So please sign up to volunteer as a valet, and remember to follow these guidelines:
Between 8:15 and 8:40 am, drop your kids off at the designated drop-off area (marked by orange traffic cones located on the corner of Wisconsin and Coral);
Do not make a U-turn on Wisconsin and Coral;
Do NOT park in the school bus zone, if you decide to park and not use the school valet;
Watch out for running kids and grownups at intersections;
Do NOT get out of your car when using the school valet;
ALWAYS have your kid exit towards the sidewalk (right) side of the car (this may mean moving that baby car seat to the middle or behind the driver's side).
Have your kids be ready to exit the car, with backpacks and other materials ready to unload;
The parent valet will open the car door, help your child exit the vehicle, and close the door;
