Road Closure and Carpool Update

Kingsley is now open from 17 to Reed Street! This means the construction by the Town of Orange Park is progressing down 17 towards the river. Kingsley Avenue from Reed Street to Astor Street is now closed. We will keep you updated as we know more, BUT, this closure impacts our morning and afternoon carpool route.

If coming to Grace for drop off or pick up on 17, you should turn onto Milwaukee (at the light), stay on Milwaukee until you can turn left on Astor. Stay on Astor until you can turn left on Stowe. Come up Stowe, just as you would for regular carpool.

After dropping off or picking up your child, you can leave campus by turning left onto Kingsley Avenue or McIntosh Avenue.

Because Kingsley is now closed between Reed and Astor, parking along the side of campus is no longer accessible for the time being. Please use carpool for drop off and pick up if possible. If you need to park for any reason, the paved spots along Reed and the newly paved spots on Kingsley ( going toward 17) are available. The empty lot on the corner of Reed and Kingsley is also available.

Thanks for your patience during all of this. It is supposed to be beautiful when it is complete.
