Drop Off and Pick Up: Safety first!

Safety Tips -- No U-Turns or double parking, please! 


Make note our drop off requests:

  • In the mornings, please pull up the hillside on 14th Avenue, along the curb, to safely drop students off (in the white zone mid-hill).  For the safety of all, do not make u-turns and/or drop students off in front of MUNI bus stops or the school drive-way.  We leave this area clear for MUNI and SFUSD buses.  

  • In the afternoons, the curbside to the school (along 14th Avenue) is not available for pick up. Please identify a location to meet your child for pick up.  The school driveway and curbside hill is for loading buses, only. Do not double park to wait for your child.


Additional safety tips:

  • Drive slowly and be alert to pedestrian and car traffic.

  • Pull as far up the white zone hillside and along the curb as close as possible for drop offs.

  • Take caution and use the crosswalk.

  • For the safety of all, no U-Turns within a block of the school, please!

  • Please avoid Casteneda Street - it's narrow and congested.


As of Spring 2017, Hoover Middle School is proud of recipient of three state awards.

Thank you teachers & staff for your contributions in making Hoover what it is!
