TAWHAI SCHOOL GLEN ROAD ENTRANCE CLOSURE

[loop-news.php]

February 19 2018

CYCLONE GITA
At this stage the worst of it is supposed to hit between 8 – noon. It’s meant to ease off after lunch and just be showers Wednesday morning. The Board apologises that the entrance closure means walking further in the rain. A life hack to keep school bags dry. Use a New World shopping bag to cover the bag – feed the plastic bag handles to loop through the shoulder straps of the school bag and tie off at the top….

PLEASE USE THE AREAS RECOMMENDED IN THE NOTICE LAST THURSDAY TO AVOID THE CONGESTION SEEN TODAY IN GLEN ROAD.

BUSES
We have raised a concern with Valley Flyer (buses), re buses going through the Glen area. They are going to call us back. We saw one very conscientious bus driver this afternoon going up Horoeka Street, who waited for a passageway – If we too can return the favour and provide them a passageway by pausing on the side of the road to allow them thoroughfare… if there are any concerns re buses please take the bus number, route number and time and email raewyn.lummis@tawhai.school.nz

PEDESTRIANS
As per the notice that came home Thursday do not cross the Road on the Corner of Glen Rd and Horoeka St on the dairy side. This pathway is only for children who live up Glen Rd or parents that are parking on upper Glen Rd, preferably Year 2s. If you happen to park on 42 -50 Glen Rd then please assist your children to cross the Street but please do this beyond the dairy, due to congestion and visibility. We want everyone to use the Horoeka St School Pedestrian Crossing, wherever feasible. There is an Adult in a High Visability Vest assisting people/children across the Road. There is another Adult assisting children to cross Hawthorn Crescent to either head up/down Glen Rd or to walk down onto Stokes Valley Rd.

HAWTHORN CRESCENT
If you would like to park down Hawthorn Crescent then please use the Horoeka St School Pedestrian crossing, walk across Glen Rd further down with the adult in the High Visibility and then walk around to Hawthorn Cres. We did not mention this area because it’s a major intersection, again with buses and a lot of intermediate parents/caregivers park their cars down there to meet buses.

DOUBLE PARKING ON HOROEKA STREET
The Board have been advised that people were parked over driveways, blocking footpaths and double parking today. Please we ask that you do not do this. Everyone needs visibility and a free walkway. The police have been asked to monitor this area. RUBBISH DAY We have contacted Waste Management and requested they do their rubbish and recycling run between 10 – 2 or after 4pm. They will do their best. If there are any concerns raised this Thursday we will ring them again.

If you have any concerns please email raewyn.lummis@tawhai.school.nz.
