The parking lot is not very big. Therefore, we recommend that you consider street parking, if there is no parking space. There is no payment for the street parking. Worst case scenario, if the street parking is full, we recommend that you park at Winston Churchill High School. The high school is basically right next to Herbert Hoover Middle School.

There are multiple lunch options a short drive away.

Thank you to The Cubicle for sponsoring this competiton. Prizes will be generously provided by The Cubicle.
