The school has identified safety concerns with its current flow of traffic during arrival and dismissal times

Beginning Monday, Oct. 5, Ada Schools will change its morning and afternoon transportation locations. 

The change came about because the school has identified safety concerns with its current flow of traffic during arrival and dismissal times.

• The north entrance, off of State Route 81 will now be the new bus loading and unloading zone.

• The south entrance, off Grand Avenue will become the student drop off and pick up location.
