Better traffic flow before and after school will be the result of the much-anticipated project in front of Schneider School in Farmer City.

 

Superintendent of Blue Ridge Schools Susan Wilson says the project is going to improve the circle drive in front of the building and create a new pattern of parking for parents picking up and dropping off students.

 

 

The project is also adding new sidewalks on each side of the road and Wilson says this is going to be a great benefit to both Schneider School and the high school.

 

 

According to the school, the back-in parking they are going to be asking parents and guardians to use has been proven to be safer than pulling in. Wilson adds this is a new rule they are asking everyone to abide by and there will be early enforcement of this rule to make sure there is compliance.

 

 

The annual open house at Schneider and Blue Ridge High School will be August 20 and the first day of student attendance is set for August 21 for Blue Ridge Schools.
