There are numerous students and community members that access Northwest School Road during the morning commute and afternoon dismissal from school. The traffic for Northwest Guilford High School and Northwest Middle is major. Without person/persons to assist in the control of this traffic we risk the lives of those driving in this area daily. We have had numerous accidents and fortunately none of these have taken a life. We would like to secure personnel to prevent this in the future.

      We are in a "freeze" pattern for now as the School Board will provide an officer to direct traffic after school for the safety of our students, staff and parents. This is a short term fix as they look for a long term solution. Mr. Kitley will keep us updated as they move forward to come up with a permanent "fix".

      We must remember this is TEMPORARY! Until a solution is in place, we must continue to advocate for the safety of OUR STUDENTS!

      Just an update on the Traffic Problem at Northwest High……

      As of Friday afternoon, we do have a temporary officer directing traffic after school.

      Late Friday afternoon, Mr. Kitley was told there was going to be a meeting at NWHS Tuesday with about 8 Officials from downtown. “THANK YOU” to the parents that have already called downtown…you have the ball rolling.

      If something is not resolved with that meeting, the connect ed "for those not in the GCS, this is a phone message that will be sent out to parents in Northwest Family" will go out that night.

      Please do not stop getting signatures for the petition. It is online now on the school website.

      Please encourage your children and others to sign the one at school….we need to be prepared.

      Thanks for everything……Lets keep our students safe.

      My 3 children have attended there, one is a senior now. They have regularly told me stories of dangerous situations coming in and out of the parking lot.
