Important Traffic Alert

The Newton Police Department has asked us to address the traffic pattern at the intersection of Beethoven and Beacon Streets, particularly at pick-up time in the afternoon. Drivers have been forming two lanes on Beethoven at the light, one to turn left and one to turn right onto Beacon St. Although cars are prohibited from entering Beethoven for a short period in the morning and afternoon, the police department has advised us that drivers are NOT allowed to form two lanes at the Beethoven/Beacon intersection. A major concern is that this blocks access to Beethoven for emergency vehicles. In addition, Beethoven remains a two way street and it is safer to maintain the same traffic regulations throughout the day. Although we appreciate that the intersection is a congested one, we ask for your cooperation in forming one lane of traffic when leaving the school.
