Stephens families –

We have been notified by the City of Salem about a closure on Hayesville Drive, beginning Monday, May 9, and continuing into the summer.

We wanted to pass along some important pieces of information:

  1. There will be a full closure at the intersection of Harland Drive and Hayesville Drive, starting Monday, May 9. This is the only closure.
  2. There will be local access everywhere else along Hayesville Drive, other than the intersection at Harland.
  3. There is no disruption for our buses as any routes impacted by this one closure have been re-routed.
  4. Walking routes will be maintained for students all along Hayesville Drive.
  5. There will be a detour from Cordon Road to Lancaster Drive that primarily uses Kale Drive.

At this time, we do not anticipate any impact to the drop-off and pick-up of students in front of Stephens. The only impact will be on drivers who approach from west of Harland Drive.

Here is the press release from the City of Salem: https://www.cityofsalem.net/Pages/hayesville-drive-NE-closing-for-construction-in-may.aspx

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this road construction!
