Good Morning Andrada, Today during MAVtime our public library (new one on Mary Ann Cleveland) will be presenting about various programs/activities they offer to students! Crafternooners (a time on Mondays after school to de-stress and engage in a craft of their choice – snacks included) & Teen Book Share (a time on Wednesdays after school for teens to discuss books they’ve enjoyed or get reading recommendations – snacks included)
Happy Monday Mavericks! Good luck on your benchmark tests! Busy week ahead. See Maverick Memo below and flyers with additional information about events this week at Andrada.
TRAFFIC ADVISORY! Intersection Improvement Valencia Road and Old Spanish Trail. Beginning Monday, December 5, construction will begin at the intersection of Valencia Road and Old Spanish Trail. Construction and electrical contractors will be widening lanes at this location and will be installing a new traffic signal. For those of you that travel in this area, the good news is all lanes of travel are expected to remain open to traffic; however, the speed limit will be reduced through the work zone to 35 MPH during work hours only. Work on the first phase of the project consists of installing underground conduits and pole foundations. This is expected to last through the end of December 2022. The second phase of the project will begin in late January 2023, and will consist of adding turn lanes and the traffic signal installation. This entire project is expected to be completed by spring of 2023. As with all construction zones, please approach the area with caution, obey all traffic control devices, and watch for crews and equipment. Have a great and safe weekend everyone.
