Road Closure to Impact Shadow Ridge High School February 1-15, 2020

The City of Surprise has scheduled a road closure on Cactus Road between Citrus and Perryville from February 1st - February 15th for utility work. As you know, this will greatly impact routes and traffic to and from Shadow Ridge High School. The city is hoping the work will be completed in as little as one week, but the closure is scheduled through the 15th as a precaution. In order to prepare for the closure, school and district staff have been working with the city to develop a traffic and student safety plan. 


We are asking Shadow Ridge families to help alleviate traffic in the following ways:
  1. Carpool to reduce the number of vehicles on the roadways
  2. Take the school bus (if eligible)
  3. If driving or dropping off, allow extra time by leaving early and being extra patient
  4. Consider using the satellite pick-up/drop-off location (pictured below) to avoid the heavy traffic directly near the school. Please remember to watch for and yield to pedestrians, and park in safe and legal areas only. Do not block driveways.
  5. If you will still be dropping off or parking on campus, familiarize yourself with the modified parking/loading plan (pictured below). 

In order to enhance safety throughout the closure, Surprise Police will be assisting with traffic control, and crossing guards will be at the Perryville/Peoria crossing to assist pedestrians. Please note that buses may be late during the closure, as they will also have to navigate the traffic. We understand that the closure and traffic congestion may limit our students’ ability to arrive on time. Our staff is aware of this, and will be understanding of this during the closure.

Thank you for your cooperation in making this street closure adjustment as smooth as possible. We understand this is extremely inconvenient for everyone, and appreciate you partnering with us to ensure this does not impact student learning, and maintains safe passage for students to and from school.
