Traffic flow routes will change Monday on the Parkway Central High School campus, the school's principal said Thursday.
Bus riders will enter the school at different doors, due to the traffic changes.
See an accompanying map here for specifics.
"As most are aware, traffic flow on campus has been particularly challenging the last month or so due to the changes with 141," Principal Tim McCarthy said.
The plan's major shifts:
- Buses will drop off by the softball field/science entrance
- Students enter the building by science or PE.
- Parents dropping off students will move to the "bus" lanes (those closest to school, to the right of the divider)
- Students will remain in the "drop off" lane (to the left of the divider)
McCarthy called for parents to consult with their students over the changes by Monday morning, particularly if students drive to school.
"If your student rides the bus, please let them know their point of entry into the building will change," McCarthy said in an email to Parkway families.
Administrators worked to identify possible changes to traffic flow patterns in an effort to alleviate on-campus congestion, and allowing more cars to move through the traffic light in a given cycle.
Here's what to expect Monday morning:
- An administrator will be outside directing and supervising movement from the buses to the building.
- Mr. Bundren will direct traffic in front of the building at the cross walk.
- Officer Evans will direct traffic at the four way stop at the corner of Gym A by Stadium Drive.
"We will monitor the effectiveness of these adjustments and. . .your feedback is welcome," McCarthy said.
