Thank you to our PTA for a fabulous night at Bingo for Box-Tops.  The event was well attended and everyone had a great time.


Parking at Podesta

Parking was doing great for a while.  Please keep in mind that you are a role model for your child.  If you are arguing with other parents, parking illegally, and acting unbecoming of a Red Tailed Hawk, you are not being a good role model.  We need to always show our best character!  Thank you for being conscience of this.  Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

REMEMBER:  The Green Zone is for dropping off & picking up.  Do not leave your vehicle.  If you need to park, park in the parking lot.

REMEMBER:  The Bus Zone is for busses only.

REMEMBER:  There is no parking on Windmill Park Drive.



*Only accessible from within the Lodiusd network.
