In light of recent events across the Country and in compliance with safety and security measures, beginning Monday, January 8, 2018, Podesta Ranch Elementary will be a closed campus. All visitors, volunteers and District employees, must sign in at the office and obtain a Visitor’s Badge, prior to entering the campus. The cafeteria will be a Student Only Zone, parents and guardians will not be permitted in the cafeteria.

  • Parents will leave the school site once their child is safely inside the entry door.
  • Morning TK and Kindergarten will dismiss at the gate.
  • Afternoon TK and Kindergarten will enter through the front doors and dismiss at the gate.
  • Parents/Guardians must wait outside the gate until older siblings dismiss, not in the courtyard, in the hallways or just outside the glass doors.


Thank you in advance, for your support and cooperation. The safety of our students and staff is our first priority.
