Parking Concern/Notice @ Esten School

 As we get ready to start another fun filled soccer season this is a good time to remind everyone about the parking restrictions at Esten School. Please note that the area under the pine trees near the playground not be used for parking due to the concerns of the safety for all the kids playing on the play apparatus and it poses a hazard for emergency personnel to access our fields. On busy days such as training on Wednesdays and Saturday game days, all side and back parking spaces are usually accounted for. Please feel free to use the spots in front of the school. Parking down the middle of the parking lot is also prohibited and cars will be ticketed and towed by the RPD at the owners expense. Our kids safety is our number one concern. Thank you for your cooperation.
