GAUDET TRAFFIC PATTERN ALERT 

 

Starting Monday morning, October 5,2020, car rider students will now use the Aquidneck Avenue side of the building. Motorists with students Grades 5-8 are asked to use the traffic circle, while those with Grade 4 students are asked to loop around the lot and leave their children at the Grade 4 entrances. 

 Conversely, students who ride buses will be dropped off on the Turner Road side of the middle school. 

 For years, the opposite traffic pattern was in place at Gaudet. However, school and police officials said a recent study indicated the new traffic pattern would help improve safety and traffic flow as well as reduce the number of cars backing up onto Turner Road. 

 Police officers and school staff will be on hand to assist motorists. Improved signage will also be posted with information about the traffic update. 

 

Anyone with questions was asked to contact Gaudet adchelf@mpsri.net via email.
