Traffic at and around EHS includes the 500 student vehicles, 200 staff vehicles, 36 buses, and hundreds of parent vehicles sharing Valley View Road with the regular traffic. With all of these vehicles using a single road to access campus it is imperative that we ask your assistance in following a few pick-up and drop-off procedures. These procedures are intended to improve both safety and convenience.
Students are always encouraged to use District transportation. Running full buses and reducing drop-offs and pick-ups is the simplest way to reduce congestion and improve safety.
- The on-campus student drop-off location is in the circle outside of Door 3.
- Student drop-off can also be done in the west-bound stopping lane to the south of Valley View Middle School. Students are cautioned that they must walk outside to EHS since Valley View Middle School is in session during the time that EHS students are arriving.

- During the regular school day (8:25-3:10) parents should pick-up their students outside of Door 3. Students are required to check with the receptionist before leaving.
- After 3:00 pm the on-campus student pick-up location is outside of Door 3. Parents may also wait for students between Door 1 and Door 2.
- Door 3 is also a pick-up location for students with limited mobility. All private vehicles must yield to District or contracted vehicles that assist in transporting these students.
- Parents may exit near Door 1 when the intersection is monitored by EHS security staff.
