Staging has begun for construction of the new Central Middle School, and of McCamley Field. Starting April 9, 2018, commuters in the area will experience some new traffic patterns during times when students are arriving and leaving school. We anticipate increased congestion between 7:15 to 8:00 am and again between 2:20 and 3:15 pm.
In order to accommodate construction, and continue to conduct school as usual, we have created a new temporary bus loop and parent drop-off loop. Our goal is student safety, while also being cognizant of the impact the new traffic flow will have on non-school traffic. Admittedly this is a huge challenge, but we have worked closely with school leaders, the City of Portage and construction management to come up with the safest and least disruptive plan possible. Please refer to the enclosed map to see the new configuration.
We know that under the best of circumstances, traffic can be a challenge as students arrive at school in the morning, and leave again in the afternoon. We ask for your patience and understanding during the construction period. We are encouraging all of our school families to give themselves extra time in the morning and arrive at school a few minutes early to avoid heavy traffic. We encourage you to take peak traffic congestion times into account if your commute takes you near the Portage Central area.
We will be monitoring the situation closely and making minor adjustments as necessary to keep our students safe and keep the traffic flowing as best as possible.
If you have any questions or concerns, please call the Administration Building at 269-323-5000. Thank you for your support of Portage Public Schools.
