SHS Morning Drop Off Changes - UPDATE 11/12/21

The School Department, Police Department, Town Manager, and Public Works have been working together to improve traffic congestion on Pleasant View Avenue (PVA).  We continue to see high volume southbound on PVA.  In an effort to reduce car volume on PVA, the following changes will be implemented beginning, Monday, November 15, 2021: 

  • Parents dropping off students will now take a right turn at the tennis courts and proceed around the back of the building. (Look for VMS Boards.)

  • Parents will drop off students at the corner of the building (See red triangle on the map.)  Students will walk to door #1.  PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW STUDENTS TO EXIT CARS BEHIND THE BUILDING!

  • Parents will exit via the access road along the baseball field.  Please make a right-hand turn onto PVA.

  • Student drivers will enter the lot and park as usual.

Additional Notes:

  • SHS opens doors at 7:00 am.  There is little traffic between 7:00 and 7:10.  Students/families are encouraged to leave earlier in the morning. 

  • School busses are running on time.  Please consider using bus transportation. 

  • We will continue to monitor the traffic and make adjustments as needed.  Thank you for your patience.
