Roadrunner Rundown – Happy New Year!


January 5, 2020

Roadrunner Families,
I hope all of you have had a wonderful winter holiday break and a fantastic start to the new year. Our staff will be spending the next two days on professional development with all of the schools from the McCallum Vertical Team and a campus-based workshop from Teaching Tolerance. We look forward to welcoming our Roadrunners back to school for a short week starting on Wednesday, January 8th. As we return, I want to remind everyone about our new traffic pattern that we adopted prior to the holidays. We have successfully implemented the new Safety Patrol drop-off area on Harris Avenue by the library parking lot. This has allowed us to have cars that have dropped off their student exit the area by turning left at the intersection of Harris and Hampton and proceeding northbound up Hampton Road. We ask that no cars come down the hill on Hampton so the path is clear for departing vehicles. In the coming months we will be adding new sidewalks around the school to improve pedestrian safety and we have expanded the library parking lot to further address parking issues. Please see the map below for reference purposes and don’t let your student out anywhere other than the designated drop-off spots. We greatly appreciate your cooperation with the new traffic pattern as we continue to work to address traffic issues at our school.

Have a wonderful week,

John Hewlett
