Important Bakie Traffic Pattern Update

Our school is adjusting its parent drop off/pick up routes for the 2022-2023 school year. With the Seminary property undergoing construction, we need to address the traffic flow in that area. We have worked with the police chief to design this route option. Click the link below for a detailed description of the new traffic flow including photographs. If you have any questions, please contact the office.
