  TPES FOUNDATION SURVEY
The Foundation asked families to participate in a budget survey to help prioritize budget needs for the upcoming year. To find out the results, go to our Survey page.
  PARKING & SAFETY REMINDERS
When driving your children to school, please allow extra time for traffic and parking needs. 

Due to construction, parking is NOT AVAILABLE at the La Jolla YMCA. Parking is reserved for YMCA members using the facilities. The school parking lot is reserved for teachers and staff. Parents must park in the neighborhood if you plan to be on campus.

Also, please make sure to use crosswalks or walk around the cul-du-sac. No jaywalking! 

Please be respectful to the Safety Patrol (students) and Safety Ambassadors (parents), as their primary concern is to ensure the safety of your children before and after school. 

Not sure how Safety Patrol moves traffic?
1 whistle = Vehicles are signaled to stop
2 whistles = Pedestrians are safe to cross
3 whistles = Vehicles may proceed
  Holiday Camps at La Jolla YMCA
The YMCA is offering camp while school is out to give children a safe, fun, and nurturing environment where they will gain knowledge, skills, and build everlasting friendships. Register online or contact La Jolla YMCA for more information at (858) 453-3483.
