We need your help! Traffic around the school presents serious safety issues during morning arrival and afternoon pick up. In order to secure student safety, we will be closing Panama at Waveland and Grace at Paris every morning from 7:50 am to 8:05 am. At dismissal, we will be closing Panama at Waveland and Grace at Paris from 2:45 p.m. to 3:05 p.m. This will begin on Monday April 22, 2013.
At 4:15 dismissal from after-school programs we cannot block the street a second time as this is not an option. Therefore we are asking that you:
•Do not park on the school side of the street •Do not double or triple park •Drive safely around the school •Watch for students walking when you drive out of the alley
We have and will continue to ask Chicago Police Department for help with this situation.
