JHS Principal: Changes planned to cut morning, after-school congestion

(From Joplin High School Principal Kerry Sachetta)

We have heard from many of you that you have experienced congestion during student pick up and drop off at JHS/FTC. 

We are reviewing a variety of long-term solutions. Beginning Monday, February 8, the exits at Joplin High School and Franklin Technology Center will be right turn only. 

Our hope is that this temporary solution improves the flow of traffic in and out of the high school. We will have staff available next week to help direct cars as they exit the school to help with this transition. 

Thank you in advance for your cooperation. If you have questions or concerns, please call the high school at 417-625-5230.

Even after hours? Weekends? Police enforcement?

Don't matter to me. I'm not stepping foot on what is the most unattractive high school campus in the state.

There you go Turner. Once again riling up your negative bitching about everything good people are trying to do to make things better for everyone.

Oh wait I just reread your post. It was a simple reporting of facts. Well anyway. Next time I WILL prove you to be what my preconceived notions want you to be.

I asked my daughter how this went yesterday....she said "The left lane was closed off but kids were still turning left anyway, clogging up the right lane. It made things worse." :/
