Traffic Notice – Final Week of School
In an effort to address our concerns about drivers cutting through the campus to move more quickly between Exchange and Market Streets, a member of the Akron Police Department in a police car will be in the parking lot next week between 7 and 8 a.m. Please be sure to adhere to the parking lot speed limit of 10 mph. The officer has been given permission to ticket speeders and to issue citations to those cutting through the Elms property. Safety for our students and the entire Elms community is a #1 concern!
