Dear District 39,

As you may know, the Village is starting a major construction project on Locust Road beginning Monday, March 11th. The project is expected to be complete in November. This will cause a significant disruption to traffic on Locust. Throughout the construction, Locust will be one-way, Northbound ONLY, between Wilmette Ave. and Lake Ave. While this will have the greatest impact on WJHS parents, we want everyone to be prepared to follow the detour.

The Village has posted information about the project including a map of the detour route -  Locust Road Construction project. In addition, the Village is holding a community meeting on March 5th at WJHS from 4-6 PM to discuss the project. All are welcome.

We will have additional communications with specifics on walking and biking for WJHS and Romona students, as well as drop off and pick up information for WJHS parents. Going forward, we will keep everyone posted on construction progress and any needed changes.

Thank you for your cooperation, and drive safely!


Your partner in education,

Dr. Ray Lechner
Wilmette Public Schools District 39
