Beginning Monday, December 18, 2017
There will be a new traffic pattern around the High School to accommodate a construction zone in the north student parking lot (in red). Please take the time to review the map included in the message and make note of the following:
- There will be no through traffic in front of the high school and parking in that area. It will be for teachers only. (in yellow)
Areas available for student parking are outlined in orange. Those that park across the street from the auditorium will have a crossing guard to ensure safe passage to campuses.
- All High School student drop-off and pick-up will be in front of the Food Service building and traffic is designated as one way from south to north (in green). **(Traffic coming from the north on White Oak Road are encouraged to drop-off in the parking lot across the street and use the protected cross walk)
- This traffic pattern will be in place until the end of August, 2018. The district would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience during the process of upgrading our facilities.
