Important Announcement from the Transportation Department

We have received confirmation from the town that the Vineyard Avenue detour will be removed on Friday, December 1, allowing traffic to pass in both directions. Toc Drive will be opened on Tuesday, December 5. We understand that construction crews will continue to work on the bridge and culvert on Tillson Avenue as long as weather permits. As a result, there will be periods when Vineyard Avenue will be reduced to one lane with flaggers to ensure the safety of the construction team.
 
In light of this news, we wanted to share with the Highland school community that several afternoon bus routes will be impacted, allowing students to arrive home from school earlier. These routes are:
 
Middle School/High School Routes D, K, and O
Elementary School Routes A, C, E, H, N, and P
 
Morning routes are expected to experience minor changes only. Parents/guardians of students whose pick-up and/or drop-off times will be significantly impacted will be notified by the Transportation Department directly.
 
If you have any questions, please contact the Transportation Department at (845) 691-1040.
