* Temporary 1401 Parking Updates:  Here’s an update from the Property Manager regarding temporary parking changes for the rest of the CAA Spring Quarter: Beginning next Tuesday, the driveway from Parkmoor Ave to the rear parking lot will be closed for construction.  This means your staff, clients and families will not be able to drive through from Parkmoor to the rear parking lot, instead they will have to enter from Harmon Court.  The attached diagram should help make this clear.  During this project it will also be OK to park in the lot adjacent to the 570 Meridian building.  We believe this work will last about 3-weeks.

* Tuition/Registration Detailed information:  For help registering for classes in the ProClass system, please email Pamela Lindsay  As the quarter draws to a near, DeAnna will follow up with all outstanding tuition balances which may not be covered by SARC.  Reminder, all 3rd absences/class will be charged $30/absence – medical/performance absences excused.  For tuition questions, please email
