Safety of students is paramount at Mt. Helix Academy, the San Diego private school.

Most common student pick-up procedure
Students should be picked up from the gate behind the main school building.

Enter at the rear of the campus from Severin Drive and exit along the east side of the building. In order to keep the traffic moving as quickly as possible, please arrive at your child’s dismissal time, not before. If you must arrive before your child is dismissed, either park in the lot or continue to circle around the building until your child’s dismissal time.

Pick-up of students on rainy days
If it is raining, Trans-K – 5 students will be dismissed at the front entrance to the main building and Jr. High students will be dismissed at the Jr. High Annex.

For safety and efficiency in the rain
Please enter the campus via Severin Drive as usual, drive along the back of the school building, and turn right after passing the dialysis center and pull up in front of the main building and we will escort your child to your vehicle,  allow your child to enter your vehicle from the passenger side, and then exit the parking lot via Severin Drive.

Late pick up
After 4:30 p.m., all students should be picked up at the main building.
