2020-21 School Access Route Plan
Oak Canyon Junior High
In accordance with state standards, Oak Canyon Junior High has identified school access routes for Oak Canyon students who live within the walk boundary established for the school. A map showing the identified routes can be viewed by following this link.
The intent of a School Access Plan is NOT to identify every school access route or to identify the more convenient school access routes; it is to identify main walk/bike routes that students can use to get to school. Care has been taken to consult with local law enforcement, school PTSA and School Community Council representatives, and the District’s traffic safety committee in establishing school access routes. Despite broad consultation and agreement from all participating parties, no one, including the Alpine School District, Oak Canyon Junior High, or local law enforcement can guarantee that the agreed upon access routes are or will ever be completely free from hazards.
Parents are encouraged to review and then walk the access routes with their child/children, to address specific concerns they may have, and to instruct their child/children to obey the laws and rules pertaining to pedestrian safety. If a parent feels their child/children should use an access route that IS NOT identified in this plan, it is their prerogative to instruct their child/children differently.
As previously stated, the intent of a School Access Route Plan is NOT to identify every school access route or to identify the more convenient school access routes. For this plan, school access routes have been identified and are described below.
