Safety and Parking

Safety is our primary concern, therefore LJCDS is a closed campus. All visitors to campus must check in with the main receptionist. Students arriving to school after the start of the school day or leaving before the end of the school day must check in/out with the specific division office.

All visitors and parents coming on campus will be scanned through the Raptor System, which performs an instant sex offender background check against the registered sex offender database in all 50 states. This process is mandatory for all visitors and parents, and the system is located at several check-in locations around campus.

Visiting Campus

  • All faculty, staff and visitors are required to display an official school ID to move freely within the campus. ID badges must be displayed on a lanyard at all times.
  • All visitors must sign in and obtain a visitor ID badge at either the main reception in the Jacobs Family Library/administration building, the three division offices or the athletic office before proceeding to any location on campus. (Expedited security procedures will be put in place and communicated for special events.)
  • LJCDS parents who volunteer in their child's classroom, on a field trip or in the library are also required to sign in and wear a temporary identification badge.
  • Security, faculty and staff personnel are directed to stop any adult not wearing a visitor ID badge and direct them to the nearest visitor check-in location. Employees who lose or forget their ID badges must stop at the security office to obtain a temporary ID badge.

Arrival and Departure

  • All but three designated parking lots are closed and locked each morning at 8:45 a.m. The ECC/kindergarten parking lot is closed and locked at 9 a.m. Security personnel patrol the Genesee and Upper School/gym lot during school hours.
  • All school parking lots reopen 45 minutes before dismissal time.
  • Students and faculty leaving campus during the school day will be required to sign out at the main reception area or at their appropriate division office.
  • Please note: All faculty, staff and LJCDS parents should obtain a parking sticker from Jocsan Leyva, campus supervisor, 858-453-3440 x200 or jleyva@ljcds.org. Campus security will be able to better direct cars that display a parking sticker.  
Our students’ safety is paramount; security services and procedures are in place at LJCDS to ensure your child’s well-being.
