At Palencia Elementary we provide a welcoming environment that nurtures leadership, fosters a caring, inclusive setting, and creates joyful passion for life-long learning by combining the best of traditional instruction with contemporary technology.
New Traffic Pattern:
The Wednesday after we return from Spring Break we are going to run a traffic pattern trial that we would like to implement for next year. The dividers that have been installed as you enter the cafeteria parking lot are a part of this plan.
Wednesday, March 22nd, in the morning, students will exit vehicles in front of the cafeteria entrance. Parents will then be directed to make the ‘s’ turn to the roundabout and exit our campus.
If you are simply dropping students off in the morning, you will not need to drive around the front of the building. If you are dropping off your child and you need to come inside, we are asking that you follow the same pattern but drive to the front of the building to park and enter. We have spoken to the PSA about this and how it will affect traffic. Please know we will be monitoring the impact to Palencia Village Drive. If you are dropping off your child after 8:30 am (morning bell) please drop your child off at the front office.
