Westover Park is the starting and ending point for the RHS Homecoming Parade, scheduled for 6:00 p.m., Wednesday, October 12. The staging areas for the parade will be the west parking lots, the front parking lot, and the bus lane. We anticipate parade participants and floats to begin arriving at these staging areas soon after 4:00, which is going to complicate the after school traffic flow on the west side. As luck would have it, we are also hosting a re-scheduled 4:00 football game on the Westover practice field, so that will add an extra layer of traffic right at 3:45.
Therefore it will be necessary to close the west parking lots and the bus lane at 3:30 today. Parents who normally pick up their students in the west parking lots will need to find a parking place on Pinnacle or Paragon streets south and east of the campus, or park on the vacant lot just south of the school. Parents attending the football game will probably want to park on Excel or Reward, north of the football field. We do not recommend parking on the vacant lot just north of the field as it is posted for no trespassing.
We apologize in advance for the inconveniences that this will cause, but it is an important evening for the RHS community, and Westover Park is honored to host this annual event. We will resume our regular after school traffic patterns on Thursday.
