Building maintenance to affect traffic at Spring Valley High

January 9, 2019

HUNTINGTON - In preparation for a roof and HVAC replacement at Spring Valley High School, administration has announced changes in the normal traffic pattern. The two contracted projects were bid out to Boggs Roofing and Manhiem Construction on Nov. 13 during a regular meeting of the Wayne County Board of Education at an estimated total cost of $2,945,995.

The Board of Education received $3.6 million from the School Building Authority (SBA) Needs Project grant that was approved in 2017 to be used in-part at SVHS.

All parent and student traffic will now enter the small student lot gate and immediately turn left. The rows one and two, the closest to Spring Valley Drive, will be blocked off at the start of the row closest to the school. The lot’s third row is intended to be used by those planning to turn right on Spring Valley Drive when leaving the lot. The fourth and final row will be reserved for those planning to turn left upon departure.

According to a school release, the morning drop-off line will follow the same procedure. There will be no traffic behind the school and students and parents can no longer access the staff lot. The bus lane in front of the school is reserved for bus traffic only from 6:45-8 a.m. and from 2:45-3:30 p.m.

Those who regularly pick up students from the school will now be required to fill out a form prior to the scheduled 3:15 p.m. pickup time. The form can be found online and should be returned to the school. Students will not be released without a release form on file. Those who do not regularly pick up students are asked to send a release form with the student on the same day. Student drivers do not need the release form and will be released at 3:20 p.m.
