Dear Farnsworth Parents, Families and Community Members,
Dropping off and picking up students before and after school is always a challenge. The addition of snow makes it even more challenging. To keep
our children safe, Linder Avenue is blocked off with horses to allow our buses to load and exit Linder Avenue from 2:30pm to approximately 3:00pm. Please do not drive around the barricades or double park parallel to them as it creates a great safety hazard to our students and staff who are out at that time.
Our plan is to work with Alderman Arena’s office as well as the Chicago Police Department to determine the best way to proceed with traffic flow
at drop off, and especially pick up. In the meantime, we will keep with our current procedure and will keep you updated as to any changes. We really need your patience and understanding during this difficult winter season.
We can only improve this situation by working together.
Please remember, my door is always open.
