West School administration worked extensivelywith the Zion Police Department and City of Zion to address student safetyconcerns during our busy morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up times. Toincrease student safety, a new traffic map is in place for the upcoming schoolyear. Please note the following changes:

  • 2 streets will have one-way trafficduring drop-off and pick-up times: Jethro Avenue from north to south and JoanneAvenue from south to north.
  • There will no longer be parkingallowed on Salem Blvd. so that traffic can clearly see the crossing guards and students.
  • Buses will drop off and pick upstudents on Joanna Avenue.
  • Adult crossing guards will be locatedat the 4 main corners:
    • Salemand Jethro
    • Salemand Joanna
    • 24thand Jethro
    • 24thand Joanna
  • There will no longer be crossingguards at the alleys and students will not be allowed to cross at the alleys.Please direct your children to walk to the corners to cross the street.
  • Bus riders will be dropped off andpicked up on Joanne Avenue next to the playground; this will allow more spacefor students to line up for the buses.
  • Students who get dropped off andpicked up by their families will meet them on Jethro Avenue in front of the school.
  • Remember that by law, the speed limit is reduced and cell phone use isnot allowed in a school zone.

Please follow thedirections of crossing guards and student safety patrols. We ask that you donot cut through parking lots, call to your students to cross in the middle ofthe street, or drive around barricades. Daily dismissal is an especially busytime around West School, and we ask for your patience and understanding. Wehope you will work together with us to make sure everyone gets home safely eachday.
