Drop Off and Pick Up

Each morning we will be meeting in room 101 of the Salvatori Computer Science Center (SAL 101). The drop off and pick up location for the camps will be on McClintock Ave.  Enter campus from Vermont Ave. at Gate 6 (36th Pl./Downey Way).  Drive past the parking attendant and turn right on McClintock Ave.   You are able to drop your children off as early as 7:45a.m. and pick them up promptly at 3:00p.m.  Please respect the CS@SC staff by not being late for pick up. Although we do not want to jeopardize the success of any students, we do reserve the right to request a student not to return if not picked up by 3:15p.m.
