As many of you have seen and heard via mailings, newspaper articles, tv news reports, etc., there are a number of road projects that are occurring and will continue to occur that impacts Waterford Elementary School. The administrative team at Waterford, along with the Goshen Schools administrators, has been in contact with city officials and are looking at ways to address the heavy traffic and stopped traffic as a result of the projects. We will be receiving more information in the coming weeks regarding this and will make sure that we communicate anything with you that would affect Waterford students. In the meantime, please make sure that you leave a bit earlier than normal to make sure your students arrive on time in the morning and are picked up in time after school. We appreciate your help and support with this.
