Crossing Guard Changes 2014-15

The City of Antioch completed a recent Crossing Guard Study that identified schools needing additional resources.  In this study, some school sites were found to have no need for the crossing guards, and others that required the guards to be moved to another crosswalk area.   This study was presented to the School Board and approved to begin changes with the upcoming new school year of 2015-2016. 


The change is as follows:


The guard at the corner of Country Hills and Timberbrook Way will be removed in June. The guard at Country Hills and Vista Grande will stay and continue to be at that intersection for next school year.


All students that are currently using the Country Hills and Timberbrook crossing will have to walk to the corner of Country Hills and Vista Grande to cross the street.

Contra Costa County Bullying Prevention Task Force


In March 2013, members of the Coordinating Council decided to form a task force to create a collaborative effort to coordinate and disseminate information, resources, and strategies to address the issue of bullying and cyber-bullying in schools.


  • To clarify a common definition of bullying, and establish guidelines for the effective evaluation of bullying prevention efforts.
  • To identify curriculum, resources, best practices, and other strategies to prevent and address bullying behavior in order to provide appropriate training and intervention for parents, school administrators, teachers and students.
  • To establish an easily accessible central location to house information, materials, and other resources available for school staff and parents.
  • To disseminate information to schools and the public in order to heighten awareness regarding the negative effects, along with prevention strategies, related to bullying and cyber-bullying.
