EXCEPTION TO BOARD POLICY 3340 ON BUS STOP ADDITIONS FOR WARREN ELEMENTARY STUDENTS
Bus Stop Additions for Warren Elementary Students
From Warren School to Mountain Shadow Apartments at 6420 S. Camino de la Tierra the distance is .0754 miles, and to the Valencia Hills Apartments at 3350 W. Valencia Road it is .0904 miles.
To the north of the Mountain Shadow Apartments there is approximately 20-25 feet of guard-rail which guards a ditch to the west of it. This rail causes any pedestrian to walk on the roadway.
North of Mountainside Village Trailer Park at 3341 W. Gentry Road, which is immediately north of Mountain Shadow Apartments, there is not a location or building that students can use as a safe haven in case of an emergency. They would have to cross Camino de la Tierra to the east side. Camino de la Tierra’s speed limit is posted at 35 MPH between Valencia Road and Bilby Road.
To avoid this, some students walk through the desert area west of Camino de la Tierra to the school zone located at Bilby Road and Gunsight Lane.
All of these constitute a safety hazard for elementary age students.
