Minden Public Schools have teamed up with the Minden Police Department and City of Minden to improve school traffic flow around the high school and middle school. The plans will reduce traffic congestion while encouraging student safety.
“We’re trying to regulate where people are coming into the schools because of COVID-19 without bottlenecking traffic,” Superintendent Jim Widdifield said. “And it’s going to make it a lot safer for kids leaving school to get to their parents at the end of the day.”
Utilizing the space available, parking for staff, students, and visitors was re-designated to provide ample off street parking. Staff parking is available on the north side of the high school as well as the old high school north and south lots. By spreading out staff parking to multiple areas, there should be more available parking for students in the main high school parking lot.
