“At Homer Elementary, we will use the expanded parking lot and Central Park Place for the pick up of student “walkers” prior to the buses arriving from Homer Intermediate. We expect these changes to greatly improve traffic flow and safety of students/families at the end of the day. More details will be shared as we move through the spring and summer.”
