Construction on Pyle

Starting Monday, December 2, 2019, Pyle Avenue will be a one-way street during pick-up and dropoff times due to construction. All traffic on the south side of the school will need to enter Pyle Ave via Lindell Road and travel west along Pyle to campus. Drivers will then be required to take a right and be routed north on Jones Blvd. Please see the map below for a diagram of the traffic flow.


To assist with the impact this will have, campus will open to students at 7:15 AM for the duration of this project. Please consider dropping students off early or on the north side of campus since Jo Rae Avenue will remain a two-way street during this time.
