Paving the Way to Safety
- laneway opens at South Windsor schools -
A paved laneway connecting Norfolk St. to Liberty St. between Vincent Massey Secondary School and Glenwood Public School has been completed.
The 2 lane, one-way artery will provide a safe student drop off area for both schools and ease the traffic congestion in the vicinity each morning and afternoon. The GECDSB covered the entire $850,000 cost of the project from its school renewal grant provided by the Ministry of Education.
An official ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening will be held on Thursday, November 9th at 8:00 a.m. at the laneway entrance on Norfolk, just west of Glenwood Public School. Representatives of the schools, the GECDSB, municipal government and the Windsor Traffic Enforcement department will be in attendance.
Communication has begun in both school communities to inform students and their families and educate them on the proper use of the laneway.
