Road Closures & Parking Changes Next Week

You may have seen electronic constructions signs noting street closures around our campus. We have been told that Frye Road will be closed next week, from June 6-10. Due to the road closure, the following parking plan is in place for ILP Conferences, Club Horizon, and other school business next week: On Monday, June 6 and Tuesday, June 7: The main school parking lot will be CLOSED. All visitors and staff must utilize the church parking lot just north of campus, or the south parking lot. The south parking lot entrance will be available via 50th Street. From Wednesday, June 8 through Friday, June 10: The main school parking lot will be accessible via the 48th Street entrance (normally an EXIT.) Vehicles will enter the lot off of 48th Street and continue through the school’s back alley, similar to Elementary School pick up procedures. Please be mindful of school/maintenance vehicles and pedestrians as you travel through the back alley. Visitors may also utilize the church parking lot just north of campus, or the south parking lot. The south parking lot entrance will be available via 50th Street. We will continue to keep you informed of any changes to our parking and traffic plans. Thank you for your patience as we navigate these...

Changes to Parking & Traffic Plans

We were informed yesterday that our new neighbors, Mountain Park Community Church, will start construction next week on their campus. This means that our South Parking Lot, located across the street from our campus off of Frye Road, will be reduced in size to approximately 100 parking spaces. This news brings several changes to our parking and traffic plans. Effective Wednesday, May 18: The South Parking Lot will only be accessible via ONE ENTRANCE, off of 50th Street. The entrance on Frye Road (across from the Secondary School) will be fenced. There will no longer be a cross walk on Frye Road near the west side of campus/Secondary School Office.  To cross Frye Road, you must use the cross walk near the east side of campus/Elementary School. There will no longer be any reserved (red bumper) parking spaces in the South Parking Lot. All spaces will be available for use. We ask that all Horizon Honors community members do the following: For safety reasons, only cross in designated crosswalks. Follow instructions from crossing guards and parking attendants. Utilize the Church Parking Lot, located just north of our campus, for additional parking.  Give yourself extra time in the morning and afternoon to navigate the changes in traffic flow. Stay clear of construction zones, construction fencing, and construction equipment. Regarding future construction plans: Horizon Honors should be able to continue to utilize the 100 spots in the South Parking Lot through the end of 2016. Frye Road improvements are scheduled during the Summer Break as not to further impede traffic flow. The church is scheduled to open June 2017. We look forward to a...
