In an effort to improve the efficiency of carpool and decrease traffic congestion, morning carpool for fifth grade only at Henderson Ward Stewart Elementary School is being rerouted to Pilcher Street beginning this Monday.
A carpool lane is properly marked, and drop off will be at the gate in front of the main office area. A security officer will be present to help direct traffic.
Carpool traffic will turn left onto Henderson Street and exit onto Highway 182. Parents are encouraged to turn right onto Highway 182 as they exit carpool in an effort to improve traffic flow.
Parents who have children in the Ward Stewart and Henderson buildings may choose either carpool route. Parents should remember the new route for fifth grade is for morning carpool only. The afternoon carpool route will remain the same on School Street.
