Melissa Ogleby for USD 253 School BoardI am excited about this new addition to Walnut! I think the teachers will be very happy and hopefully it will allow more safety in the morning and afternoon for the kids.

Carol WarkentineWhere is this at Walnut? North of school where small parking areas were?
