Traffic and Student Safety

Traffic Rules
 

Dear Dougherty Valley High School Families,

 

As our community grows, our goals are to continue positive "Safety Efforts" and to adhere to civic codes.  Please review the following Safety Rules:

 

BY-LAW:  Fire Lanes MUST BE CLEAR AT ALL TIMES.  Not to be used for pick-up or drop-off.  This is considered a civil code violation.

 

BICYCLIST 

  • MUST WALK THEIR BIKES while on campus.
  • Bicyclists should not ride on sidewalks, or weave in between cars.  Bicycles must be locked up in the designated bike rack areas.

SKATEBOARDS

  • Are not to be ridden on campus.
  • Skateboard Racks are available in the Bike Corral located behind the Career Tech.
  • If not utilizing the skateboard rack, SKATEBOARDS MUST BE KEPT IN LOCKERS ALL DAY OR THEY CAN BE LEFT IN THE CAMPUS SUPERVISORS OFFICE. 

*NEED TO KNOW TRAFFIC TIPS:

  • We have closed off the parking lot under the solar panels to all drop-off traffic. ONLY VEHICLES DISPLAYING A CURRENT PARKING PASS, or those individuals needing to park and visit the office will be allowed to enter this area.
  • Visitor spots are located in the 3rd row of the lot.
  • If you are DROPPING A STUDENT OFF and not parking, please enter the school at the driveway marked with a "D" in the diagram below.  All drop-off traffic will be routed to the drop-off loop, which has been designed to handle a large volume of vehicles in a short amount of time.
  • Students and others who are parking should enter the school at the signal at the intersection of Albion Way and Arrowfield Way, which is marked with a "P" in the diagram.
  • Additionally, parents and students should not be using the fire lane along side the Performing Arts Center.  This fire lane is meant for emergency vehicles and staff vehicles to access the rear parking lot.  Please refrain from entering the fire lane designated with an "S" in the diagram below.

 

*Please see parking lot diagram below.

REMINDERS:

  • Pedestrians should always use a crosswalk to cross streets and driveways.
  • Students should remove headphones and listen and look both ways before crossing streets.
  • Vehicles should follow all posted traffic rules, including speed limits, no cell phones, and turning prohibitions.  PEDESTRIANS Always have the right of way.
  • U-Turns are illegal on Albion Way.  The San Ramon Police Department has assured the school that they will be patrolling this area more heavily as we implement these changes.
  • NO PARKING, NO DROP-OFF OR PICK-UP IN FRONT OF THE MAIN GYM.
  • NO PARKING at VENTURE.
  • PLEASE KEEP THE INTERSECTIONS AND ROADWAYS ON AND OFF CAMPUS CLEAR SO TRAFFIC FLOWS SMOOTHLY.
  • Pedestrians ALWAYS need to wait when you SEE THE "RED HAND" Flashing.

 

 

Our main goal is to ensure safe travel for students to school each day whether that be on foot, by car or via bicycle.  THANK YOU for your attention to these details as you visit Dougherty Valley High School.  Have a wonderful day and Happy New Year!
