Safety Valet

Pedestrian Safety & Traffic Control

Safety Valet is available after 7:40 a.m. Please do not drop off your child(ren) before then.


In collaboration with the Los Angeles Department of Transportation and LAPD, Colfax implements a safety valet program to help prevent accidents and keep our children safe. The valet program is operated by dedicated volunteers every morning. We hope the program will help you get off to a more relaxing morning by reducing traffic jams and promoting child safety.

How can you help? Please follow these rules:

  1. Please have your child's backpack in his/her hands ready before entering the safety valet zone
  2. Make eye contact with the volunteer indicating approval for them to open the passenger door
  3. The volunteer will open and close the car door
  4. All children MUST exit the passenger side/curbside ONLY! Please arrange car seats to facilitate this.
  5. Drivers may not exit their vehicles
  6. Smile and thank our volunteers before you say, "Good-bye, I love you!" to your child. 

Colfax Parking Lot Valet

Please help us clear traffic off of Colfax Avenue. Do not allow your child to exit the vehicle until you have pulled up to the safety volunteer. You are placing your child in harms way when you allow your child to exit the vehicle unattended. You will also cause traffic to back-up because you did not wait for the person in front of you to exit.


Colfax Ave. Staff Parking Lot is Closed to Cars for Pick-Up in the Afternoon

The gates to the Colfax Ave. Staff Lot are closed to cars at pick-up time immediately after school. Parents will still be able to walk in through the gates to pick up students; however, cars will not be permitted. The gates will re-open to vehicles at 3:00 p.m. for pick-up from after-school programs. If you have any questions, please call the office. Thank you for helping us to keep all students safe!
