Crowden is wheel-chair accessible. The accessible entrance is off of Sacramento Street, through our parking lot. There is a buzzer at the gate if you need further assistance.

Parking & Safety
There is ample free street parking in our neighborhood. Crowden's parking lot spaces are reserved for staff and faculty only. Out of consideration for our neighbors, please avoid parking—even temporarily—in such a way as to disturb families in the vicinity. This includes parking in illegal areas, driveways, or in any way that inconveniences or obstructs the neighbors.

Double parking and U-turns in front of the building are illegal and dangerous; do not double park as that impacts school bus safety during morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up times. Please use the green-curbed bay in front of the school when dropping off or picking up students. Adults who park on the opposite side of the street must accompany students across the street using the crosswalks.

Thank you for visiting Crowden!
