For the safety of your children, do not discharge or pick-up students on Melody Lane, Acacia Avenue, Fullerton Creek Road, or the faculty parking lot. Families may park on Melody Lane and walk students to school along the church. Parents needing to park for scrip purchase, volunteering, deliveries, etc. are asked to follow the carpool procedure to drop-off their child before parking.

Additionally, there is no parking in the stalls marked “R” since those are designated for Rosary High School students.
