Driveway Construction Begins Monday

In an effort to provide more safety and improve the traffic flow at the Balch Street entrance of the middle school, contractors will begin widening the driveway on Monday, December 10th. Work will continue for approximately 10 days and during that time only one lane will be accessible from 7:00 a.m. to 2:45 p.m., which will impact morning drop off.

There will be a traffic detail with officers stationed at each end of the work zone and although the driveway will continue to support two-way traffic, while the work is being done, there will only be one lane available.

We anticipate some delay in the morning. During afternoon pick-up the driveway will be back to normal as work will be completed for the day and the driveway will return to two lanes. Please consider dropping your students off prior to getting to the driveway and letting them walk the rest of the way.

We appreciate your cooperation while this work is being performed.

Last Day for Lost and Found!

The Lost and Found area outside the library is full of your children's belongings! Facilities management tells us that everything MUST be cleared out by end of week. TODAY (Friday) everything remaining will be given away.

Once the area is cleaned out and we get more racks in we will try to regularly post photos online of new items, but we will also dispose of of things more frequently.
