Construction and Traffic Flow on Campus
Posted on: Aug 01, 2017
This summer, we broke ground on the A.R. and Marylouise Tandy Dining and Wellness Center, between the Walter Arts Center and the Middle School. This building project will impact traffic patterns and parking on campus throughout the year. Traffic could be altered day-to-day due to construction, so please pay close attention to both signage and directions from security personnel.
There will be faculty members wearing orange vests directing traffic during the first few days of school to help all of us adjust to these changes. Please drive slowly and keep in mind the following details:
The two-lane road from the front gate to the Upper School is changing from one-way to two-way traffic.
The road behind the Walter Arts Center to the east will be closed. If you enter or park behind the Upper School or the Upper School gym, you must exit the same way you entered, via the new road west of the Upper School.
Parking along the west side of the now two-way road leading to the Upper School will be for Faculty/Staff only. Additional student parking will be in the lot in front of the WAC.
On the east side of the Middle School, the road between the Middle School and the playground will no longer be a through-road. Instead, there will be a turnabout for drop-off and pick-up. You will circle the turnabout and exit the same way you entered.
4th, 5th, and 6th Grade – enter through the middle gate
7th and 8th Grade – enter through the main gate
4th, 5th, and 8th Grade – enter through the middle gate
6th and 7th Grade – enter through the main gate
Please note: the road to the north of the Middle School between the main and middle gates will be one-way to the west from 7:00-8:30 am and 2:30-4:00 pm.
While traffic flow will remain the same as last year, symbols have been added to each lane to assist you in arriving at the correct pick-up/drop-off point for your student.
Blue Circles = PreK
Red Squares = 1st and 2nd Grade
Green Diamonds = 3rd Grade
Early PreK, Junior K, and Kindergarten will continue to pick-up/drop-off at the circle drive.
