High School Parking Lot Update Beginning Wednesday, November 11 installation of a new water line will start in the high school parking lot. The line will follow the orange paint in front of Brady-Hipp Arena and Gathright Gymnasium. Work will begin after 8:00 each day and should stop around 2:30 each day in order to impede before and after school traffic flow as minimally as possible; however, it will impede traffic in that area between 8:00-2:30 so an alternate route will need to be taken. Thank you in advance for making proper accommodations.
