Traffic Information 

Getting all students to school safely each day is a priority for our entire community. Please make sure you are obeying all traffic laws. Below is a diagram showing the pick up and drop off procedures. This is especially handy for families that are new to Oak Valley. Please help us in ensuring the safety of all students.


Pick Up/Drop Off Procedures

Please make sure you are dropping off students in the orange drop off zones only. This is critically important to ensure the safety of students in our parking lot and surrounding areas. Cars turning onto Winecreek Road should follow the flow of traffic into the parking lot until you reach the orange drop off area. Cars will need to wait and move as far forward as possible to expediate the process. Staff are present in the morning and afternoon to help.


At the end of Winecreek Road there is an entrance to the Ivy Gate community. This is a private road. Please respect our neighbors and do not use this road for making U-turns, waiting to pick up your student, or parking.


The section of Carmel Valley Road between Dove Canyon and Winecreek is a Three-Minute Drop Off/Pick only. There is no extended parking allowed here. Please use caution as you stop to drop off/pick up your student as there is also a floating bike lane along the road.
