The Chilton Public School District has announced that an additional bus stop will be added to the area near Diane Street. By law, the school district is not required to transport students who live less than two miles away from school. But the law also states that if an area that is less two miles from school is declared by law enforcement as potentially dangerous to the safety of children, then district transportation services may be used to transport students in that hazardous area. The area on Diane street south of U.S. HWY 151 has been declared a hazardous area due to the absence of sidewalks on a four-lane highway with moderate traffic and a 40 MPH speed zone. As such, the school district has been picking students up at the corner of Diane Street and Steenport lane for many years.

According to Dr. Timothy Schaid, high school principal and the district's transportation coordinator, the pick-up point at Diane Street and Steenport lane was chosen because at the time it was the only place the bus could stop and still be able to safely turn around for egress back onto U.S. HWY 151. With the area being further developed over the past several years, there is now the ability for the bus to make an additional stop and still be able to safely turn around. As such, beginning with the first day of school on September 1, a bus will be making the following stops in the area of Diane Street on the south side of U.S. HWY 151:
• Stop 1 = Corner of Diane Street and Jemima Lane (bus will then turn around in the cul-de-sac on Jemima Lane)
• Stop 2 = Corner of Diane Street and Steenport Lane (bus will then exit this area onto U.S. HWY 151 where it will resume its normal route)
Parents who have any questions or concerns regarding this change or about the school district's bussing services are encouraged to contact Dr. Tim Schaid at Chilton High School by calling 920-849-2358 or through e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Tuesday, June 7, 2001 is the last day of the school year for the School District of Chilton. This will be a half-day of attendance for students with dismissal at 11:30 a.m. On this date, the School District will also be hosting WIAA Baseball sectional games. Game times will be 10:30 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 3:45 p.m. In order to accommodate staff parking, student pick-ups (by bus and parent), and event parking, I am requesting the following:

- All Middle School staff members are asked to park their vehicles in the Elementary School parking lot on June 7.
- School busses will enter school property for student pick-up off of Court Street and will line up nose-to-tail, along the curb, on the south end of the ES/MS building. First bus will be behind the MS with remaining busses extending to and beyond the pool entrance. Students will board busses curb-side.
- The School District will request police assistance for an orderly flow of traffic along Court Street onto and off of school property at dismissal time.
Parents need to be made aware of these circumstances, as much as possible, prior to June 7 in order that they can plan accordingly. If possible, it would be appreciated if families could car pool with student pick-up on this day in order to minimize the amount of traffic flow.
Thank you, in advance, for your assistance in planning for a safe and orderly dismissal on June 7, 2011!
