Sessions Elementary Celebrates New Dropoff Zones

Sessions Elementary Associated Student Body President Bethany Kepner and Principal Susan Devicariis joined students, parents and staff in celebrating the school's new student drop-off and pick-up zone. The official dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony was held the day students returned from spring break, the first day students and parents could use the new drop-off and pick-up zone. Principal Devicariis says this was a very important change for the school and community.

The project included widening and relocating the existing driveway into the parking area, adding fencing and landscaping, installing dedicated left-turn lanes on Beryl Street and adjusting traffic signals. The changes are expected to improve traffic and parking, and ensure safer conditions at the school.

The nearly $2 million project was funded by Proposition S, San Diego Unified School District’s general obligation bond that was passed November 2008 for capital facilities improvements at district schools. Construction began May 2011 and was completed March 2012. The project partners were Group Cristilli Architects and Summit Builders Construction Company.
