Dear Stafford MSD Families:
Welcome to new school year! Due to new construction and the opening of school, there will be increased parking limitations and traffic congestion when entering the Stafford Municipal School District (SMSD) Complex. Several members of the Stafford Police Department will be on duty to assist with traffic for the opening of school.
The parking lot between the Civic Center and across from the elementary and middle schools will not be available for staff parking (see map). In the morning, the Civic Center parking lot will be used as a parent drop off area only. In the afternoon, the Civic Center parking lot will be used for parent pickup for the primary and elementary students. The new middle school parking area will serve as an overflow area if needed for parking.
In addition, Staffordshire Road is currently barricaded near the stadium entrance which requires that the SMSD community will have to seek alternative routes to gain access to the SMSD Complex in the meantime. SMSD is also in the process of constructing more parking near the Career and Technology Center. The parking in that area will not be available for several weeks after the school year starts.
We understand that all these factors will cause major temporary inconveniences, however, we will all benefit from the new construction and upgrades. We look forward to your support and cooperation to ensure that everyone remains safe.
Yours in Service,
Dawn DuBose, Ed.D.
Chief of Schools
Stafford Municipal School District
