As the school year rapidly approaches, we want to remind everyone that we are entering this school year with different conditions than in past years with an active construction site on school grounds and in close proximity to the current high school. Ames High is always active with students, parents, and the community attending numerous events throughout the week. Safety is a primary focus of ours and we want to remind everyone to be cautious around the adjacent construction site. Here are a few key reminders:
- Be aware of increased traffic along Ridgewood Avenue associated with construction activities including cross traffic at the two construction entrances.
- Obey all construction warning signs, including pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicle. There will be time periods where detours will be necessary to perform the required work.
- Respect the limits of construction – no students, faculty, athletes, parents, and visitors should enter the construction site without authorization from Story Construction and the Ames Community School District. Anyone authorized to be in the construction site will be escorted by Story Construction.
We will continue to work to minimize any disruption to school activities and to communicate any known issues ahead of time to keep the parents and the community informed. …
