Hello Sunkist Bears! Please take a few minutes to review Sunkist's Parking Lot Etiquette. In an attempt to keep all students, staff, and families safe we would like to share the following: 1. Parking lot is for district staff and handicapped individuals only. 2. Please use sidewalks when walking on campus. Walking in the parking lot is dangerous and not permitted. 3. Please do not enter through the Exit. Port Hueneme police will be monitoring the exits for drivers who violate this rule as it is dangerous and illegal. 4. Please be respectful of staff as we enforce the rules. Our main concern is student safety-if we work together we can keep everyone safe. Thank you for your respect and cooperation
