Residents voted 236 to 45 to use $ 1.4 million of unused funds the district has available to build a new bus loop near the elementary school athletic fields. The new loop is expected to reduce congestion and improve safety at the school, according to a district statement. Currently, parents, pedestrians and buses all exit the main school parking lot near the main entrance.

The school created extra space and redirected pickup and drop-off from parents to help reduce traffic in the meantime.

“We are very satisfied with the results and the participation rate. I thank the residents for their approval of this important project, ”said Superintendent James Niedermeier. “This new bus loop will increase safety and efficiency during pickup and drop-off times, and we will also have additional parking for events, as well as a more visually appealing entrance for visitors and families to the neighborhood. “

The referendum also included the replacement of some school windows, according to the district.
