Hello Hermes/Intermediate Parents & Guardians,
Beginning Monday, February 10th, there will be some changes on Jackson Street for bus drop-off and dismissal. Phase 2 of construction is beginning. Our current bus parking lot will become a construction zone, making Jackson Street our new bus drop-off and pick-up zone. Due to this change, we are asking that parents no longer stack on Jackson street for the Travis street pick-up line in the afternoon and all parking spaces by the gyms not be used during the school day. Continuing down Milam one block at drop-off and pick-up is encouraged. Those that do travel on Jackson Street are encouraged to turn behind HEB as students will be loading/unloading buses at dismissal/drop-off on Jackson. In addition, the use of the bus parking lot will no longer be available for little league or other events happening in the gyms.
Also, tentatively, we are projecting that use of the new cafeteria will begin Tuesday, February 18th. At that time the west side of campus will all become part of the construction zone. So, students dropped off on Milam Street will begin entering the Hermes building in the morning and will no longer be using the sidewalk gate as a point of entry.
During inclement weather, students being dismissed on Travis Street will be held in Gym A until buses leave Jackson Street. Students will then load from the covered sidewalk on Jackson Street between the two gyms.
We are working closely with law enforcement to ensure the safety of everyone and appreciate your flexibility as each new phase of construction begins.
