Upcoming Events

Wednesday Farmer's Market Day

The Farmer’s Market will take place on Main Street between Sixth and MLK every Wednesday through September 18.  Vendors begin set-up at 8:00 AM and the street will be closed to traffic at 8:30 AM.  Main Street in front of the school will be open until 8:30 AM but passage will be narrow.  Additionally, the ongoing construction on Sixth between Main and Locust means that this leg is down to one lane.

Please exercise caution in the morning and allow for extra time.  Our first priority is safety, and we want to ensure safe drop-offs for everyone.  You may wish to consider dropping off your child on Main Street between Fifth and Sixth Streets or at a difference location to help ensure safe passage and smooth traffic flow.  We will have a police officer on hand to assist.
