The Village of Palatine, District 211, and Fremd High School staff have been discussing ways to relieve traffic congestion and improve safety outside the school during morning and afternoon peak times. Beginning on Wednesday, May 28, temporary barriers will be placed on Illinois Avenue to create a designated drop-off area for eastbound traffic. The drop-off area will improve safety for pedestrians and designate a clear traffic merge location. While the change is intended to have minimal impact to traffic flow, please allow extra time for your morning commute to guarantee your child’s prompt arrival at school.
Additional changes will be made to improve traffic flow before the start of the next school year, and you will receive information about these later this summer.
If you have questions or concerns, please call Assistant Principal Eric Dolen at 847-755-2612.
