Monte vista traffix fix 

TRAFFIC PLAN:  We are all aware of the traffic concerns at Monte Vista and it is all of our hope that in working together we can make changes that should keep the traffic flowing. To lessen traffic MV has Traffix bus service, County Connection bus service, informal car pools, and student parking for 600+ cars.  In addition, many students have staggered schedules for A-4 or 2-6 periods.  What can your family do to be part of the solution?  Please consider an option that works for your family.  If you have a suggestion please email an administrator.    


SAFETY PLAN:  Safety is a priority we can all agree upon.  Please drive slowly on campus, with all attention on students that could be stepping into traffic and cars.  Please obey all traffic laws and do not block any exit lanes or intersections at any time!  Traffic is truly a group effort and any change can make a difference.   


Monte Vista Drivers -   Please consider one or more of these options to lessen the jams..  

  1. Skip the jam - Come early and pick up late!!  Workday Student Center is from 7am - 4pm.
  2. It is about time - We know to arrive early before a flight- why not the same for school?  Set up your student for a successful, stress free day with early arrival, time to walk to class and get settled.  
  3. Avoid the student lots - Drop off and Pick up students @ Los Cerros, Oak Hill Park, or a nearby church (St. Timothy’s, Rolling Hills, LDS).  Sometimes students walking away from school is the fastest!
  4. Create a carpool to minimize cars on the road.  
  5. Encourage students to walk or ride a bike to school.


Horseshoe Tips:  The horseshoe driveway is used by buses before and after school and by students during school hours.   Any parking off this driveway is for Admin and Staff.   Please consider another reliable option for pick up and drop off.   

  • The Monte Vista Horseshoe driveway is limited to bus traffic only during drop off and pick up.
  • Horseshoe is closed midday for student safety during lunch and student support.
  • To keep traffic flowing, always turn right out of the Horseshoe.  If you plan to drive west on Stone Valley then you should use the light and the North Lot.   


South Lot- Roundabout Tips:  There is limited space in front of the gym.  To keep the area moving use a parking space to load students instead of an exit lane.  Although we do not have police ticketing these behaviors, be aware we are all neighbors and need to work together to keep this area moving. 


North Lot Tips: The bonus of using this lot is the light so cars may exit in both the East and West direction.  Cars waiting for students should pull all the way into a parking space instead of blocking the exit lanes and stopping the traffic flow.
