Parking and Traffic
Due to construction on campus, there are temporary changes to parking and traffic patterns this fall. All of the details are available HERE. Please keep in mind:
- There are two lanes when you turn into the parking lot. Please utilize them to get off of Wyoga lake faster.
- Utilize the drop-off and pick-up lanes that are along the construction fence line.
Now that Walsh is back in school, traffic on Wyoga Lake Road is heavier. Please be patient and arrive early if possible. As families adjust to the morning schedule, the flow of traffic will improve.
Also, NO shortcutting is permitted through the Alro Steel PRIVATE PROPERTY between State Road and Wyoga Lake Road.
Please Update Your Contact Information
Parents, please update your contact information in Family Portal so we can be sure to keep you informed.

A Look Inside Shya Designs
The Rwandan genocide left many tragedies in its wake, leaving many widows to support themselves. To create a platform for these women, Shya Designs sells handmade bags and accessories from Rwanda and sends the profits directly to the women who made the bags. Not only do we support them financially, but we are a way for them to get their voices heard and story known. Come support the women at Back-to-School night at the Shya Designs booth and follow us on Instagram @shyadesigns! More information is available at shyadesigns.com. (Shya Designs is a student-led business of CVCA’s School of Business and Entrepreneurship.)
