Upperman High School Traffic Flow Changing With Start Of Construction

With work to begin on Upperman High School’s expansion project, the school’s families should expect a different traffic flow at their return from fall break.

The work begins October 3rd. Director of Schools Corby King said the current parent pick-up will change from where it currently runs, as well as student parking.

“The student parking lot entrance will be on the east side of the building which is between the high school and the middle school,” King said. “So students will enter the student parking lot between the schools and the buses will be on the driveway which they currently use.”

King said the parent car line will move to the west side of the building between the apartments and Upperman High School. He said that the school is doing its best to give parents as much notice as possible about the incoming changes, with diagrams being sent home and communications from the school every Monday, Wednesday, Friday leading up to the return to school.

King said that the new traffic flow will take some adjusting, but asks for parent and student patience.

We know there will be traffic and small issues to work out as things progress. Our goal is to maintain a safe route and process for students and families during arrival and dismissal times,”
UHS Principal Steve Robbins said. “Please know we are here to answer any questions or concerns during the construction phase.”

King said they are hopeful the project will wrap up by next Christmas.
