Reconstruction on Park City High School is disturbing traditional drop-off/pick-up routines for the school. The school has lost the circle in the rear where parents have dropped students off, said Laurie Alexander, school safety coordinator.

Parents can still drop students off behind the fence in the old main parking lot area, Alexander said, then kids have to walk the last 50 yards.

She encourages students to carpool, take the bus, or find an alternative drop-off point. "People complain and all I can tell them is we live in a busy world so we can get done what we need to get done," Alexander said. The first portable classroom, or learning cottage, are arriving at Park City High School this week. Eleven more of the double-classroom cottages will be installed in the Eccles Center parking area to house classes displaced by demolition, preparatory to the school’s reconstruction.
