Dear Riverview Families
As we reach the midpoint of our summer, I wanted to share some information on changes upcoming with morning pick up and drop off at Riverview School.
Following is some information relating to parking and traffic circulation updates occurring at Riverview School for the 2015-16 school year. Our construction projects, both the interior building and the exterior property, are on schedule as we prepare for the start of school on September 1st.
Student safety was the primary focus as we looked at revamping our traffic patterns and parking areas. We sought to separate bus traffic away from the areas where parents pick up and drop off students. We also sought to provide improved walkways on the school property for our students that walk to school.
Our primary parent pick up and drop off area will be on the north side of Prosser Street adjacent to the school building. Three (3) other areas may also be used for drop off purposes and are noted below.
The staff parking lot on the north side of the school will have one entrance/exit area on School Street in the southeast corner of the parking lot. A sidewalk will extend from the north down School Street for walkers down to the entrance/exit of the parking lot. The entrance/exit to the staff parking lot will be staffed before and after school with a crossing guard.
Buses will drop off and pick up students in the bus lane within the staff parking lot which is accessible from School Street. All buses will now enter the staff parking lot via Prosser Street and head north on School Street to the site.
Please see the traffic circulation map for details. Additional information on our new traffic patterns will be available on the school website in the next few days and will also be sent home to district families.
The following is a summary of the overall traffic circulation patterns proposed on site and on the surrounding public roadways (for informational purposes only):
The following is a summary of the proposed street sign modifications within the public right-of-ways:
Please feel free to contact our school office at 262-889-4384 if you have any questions. We are excited and can’t wait to share the new changes coming to Riverview, both inside and out of our school!
