Parking and Traffic Changes Due to Construction
Thank you for your patience during our construction projects! As we get closer to completing the Rasnick Center, we will need to re-route traffic for a few weeks. (Click on image for a larger view.) Beginning next week, when entering the school parking lot, all lanes will remain open. However, all vehicles exiting the south parking lot from the Middle School Entrance and Fieldhouse area will be re-routed behind the school. This is just a temporary change. Please remember that the Main Entrance of the school is reserved for busses between 7:30 and 7:50 a.m. Thank you in advance for your patience!
