Parking Lot Procedures

Dear Fairmont Families,

All of our children will be safe if you will please read and follow these guidelines. The safety of our students is our greatest concern. To ensure the safety of all, we have designated locations for parking and student pick-up and drop-off. In addition, students have designated pathways for entering and exiting school grounds to keep them out of the way of traffic. As a school of almost 900 students and over 90 school employees, it is important that parents and visitors to the campus be made aware of all procedures. Please review the information below along with the traffic pattern maps to help maintain a safe school environment for all.

Designated Parking Spots

  • Unmarked Parking Stalls: The unmarked parking spots are designated for parents who are volunteering or have an appointment on campus. These spots are located in front of the school and also in the main parking lot. All other parking on campus is for employees only.
  • 30-Minute Visitors: The parking spots located in front of the office along the green curb are provided to parents and visitors that have short business in the school office. The parking spots along the green curb in the D-Village drive-through lane are for parents dropping off or picking up students from Child Care.
  • Handicapped: Cars parked in the Handicap spots must have a Handicap sticker or signage. Any violators may be cited by the police.
  • Reserved with a Number: These parking spots are assigned to full-time school employees from 6:00 AM – 6:00 PM, Monday through Friday. This ensures that any full-time administrators, teachers, and/or school staff at Fairmont are provided a parking location upon arrival. If a spot is empty, it must remain available for the teacher to whom it is assigned who will be returning from lunch or another appointment.
  • STAFF: The STAFF parking spots are designated parking for Fairmont support staff. Many of these school employees provide services to various school sites and are on a tight schedule. In order to provide the proper supervision for students, these spots must remain available so teachers, noon supervisors, and child care workers can get to their places on time. Only school employees should park in these spots.
  • D-Village Parking: This lot is reserved for full-time teachers only.

Pedestrian Walkways

  • Students walking to and from school should never cross the entrance of a parking lot or drive-through lane without the assistance of a crossing guard.
  • When entering the school from Fairmont Blvd., students will remain on the sidewalk until they reach the Main Gate entrance.
  • When entering the school near the intersection of Yorba Linda Blvd. and Fairmont Blvd., students will use the walkway between the D-Village staff parking lot and the classrooms.
  • When walking to school on Yorba Linda Blvd. from Kellogg toward Fairmont Blvd., pedestrians should remain on the sidewalk and turn right into the D-Village drop-off area.

D-Village: AM Drop-Off

  • When entering the D-Village driveway from Yorba Linda Blvd., please stay in the two lanes closest to the red curb and merge to one lane before dropping your child at the curb.
  • NEVER drop students off along the red curb area or on the street.
  • Have backpacks and students ready before entering. Pull as far forward as possible next to the curb. Come to a complete stop as close to the car in front as possible. DO NOT park or get out of the car. Students MUST exit on the passenger side of the car ONLY.
  • PLEASE DRIVE SLOWLY following the car in front to exit.
  • Right turns ONLY when exiting the drive through.

D-Village: PM Pick-Up

  • The D-Village drive-through will be closed and coned off until the buses have picked up students and exited the parking lot. When a staff member opens the parking lot and moves the cones, cars may enter for pick-up.
  • When entering the D-Village drive-through, the two lanes merge to one lane along the curb. Vehicles in the pick-up lane will pull as far forward as possible along the curb.
  • Please do not stop in random spots. Pull all the way forward close to the car in front.
  • NEVER pick-up students along the red curb area or on the street.
  • DO NOT PARK OR LEAVE THE CAR ALONG THE CURB AREA AT ANY TIME. Simply stop to wait for your student to get in the car and keep moving.
  • Students will line up along the fence area and wait for their rides to arrive.
  • Right turns ONLY when exiting the parking lots.
  • To pick up a student who is walking home, please stand back away from the gate and fenced area and wait for the child. This will help with the congestion at the gate and allow students to move safely along the sidewalk area.

Front of School: AM Drop-Off

  • The north driveway is entrance only; the south driveway is exit only.
  • When entering the main parking lot, please stay in the two lanes closest to the red curb and merge to one lane before crossing the yellow crosswalk area. NEVER drop-off or pick-up students along the red curb area or on the street.
  • Have backpacks and students ready before entering the drop-off lane. Pull as far forward as possible next to the yellow curb. Come to a complete stop as close to the car in front as possible. DO NOT park or get out of the car. Students MUST exit on the passenger side of the car ONLY (curbside).
  • DO NOT PARK OR LEAVE THE CAR ALONG THE DROP-OFF AREA AT ANY TIME. Stop and wait for your student to get in the car, but do not park and get out of the car at any time.
  • Right turn ONLY when exiting the parking lot.
