EVHS Traffic Safety: Keeping Our Students Safe
Evergreen Valley High School has nearly 2,700 students. Safety is our #1 priority, so it is important that everyone knows Evergreen’s rules regarding traffic safety. We want all of our students to be safe on the way to and from school. Please remember – we are all role models for our students. Because of this, we should all follow safety directives to set a good example and keep our campus safe. Please help us keep all our students safe by following all safety procedures at EVHS.
"DROP OFF / PICK UP ZONES"
The official zones to drop off and pick up students are the student parking areas accessed by entering the campus on Ruby Avenue and Quimby Rd. Please remember that Arcade Avenue, Quimby Road and Ruby Avenue are all "No Stopping at Any Time" zones. These areas are unsafe for pedestrians as accidents can occur. Please do not drop students off on Quimby Rd, Ruby Ave., or Arcade Ave. For safety reasons, students that are dropped off outside the student parking areas will be directed to walk around to the student parking lot. Unfortunately, tardies are unable to be excused for this reason.
FLAG POLE LOOP, VISITOR PARKING AND STAFF PARKING LOTS
The Flag Pole Loop, Visitor Parking, and Staff Parking (located along Quimby Rd. and Arcade Ave.) are not designated drop-off or pick-up zone areas. These areas are reserved for our special education students, visitors and staff. Please do not use these areas to drop off/pick up your student, it causes traffic congestion and it jeopardizes our students' safety.
PARKING LOT ETIQUETTE
In consideration of other parents, please park in any available parking space while waiting for your student to be released from school. Please do not wait at the curb. Parking at the curb, even though not painted red, causes traffic congestion and unsafe conditions for students. Please remember, red curbs are designated fire lanes. Please do not park in the fire lane – find an available parking space. Also, please remember that both the Ruby Avenue and Quimby Rd. exits are “right turn only” intersections.
Thank you for making EVHS a great school and helping to keep our students safe!
