  • South Building Front Parking Lot to be Closed

    The South Building front parking lot is closed so that construction of the new high school can proceed. Here is a detailed map showing the changes.

    • All student parking is across Westerly Parkway in the North Building lot.
    • Faculty parking is in the South Building rear lot by the main office, and in temporary lots by the North Building’s Logan Avenue entrance and by Community Field.
    • The North main student drop-off/pick-up point is at the North Building’s Logan Avenue entrance.
    • The South student drop-off/pick-up point, for before and after school only, is at the designated area behind the South Building via the loop road starting at O’Bryan Lane.  Look for the signs.
    • During the school day, the South student drop-off/pick-up point is in the parking area outside of the main South office.
    • The main student travel path between the North and South buildings passes by Welch Community Pool and leads to the South main entrance.
    • Another student travel route is a gravel path from the South auditorium paralleling O’Bryan Lane and leading to a Westerly Parkway crossing.

    For now, the access road from the North parking lot to Plaza Drive will remain open.
