Summer session 2019 update

We are working to find an off-campus location for the Lab School Summer Camp this summer. We are also assessing the pick-up/drop-off situation for the start of the fall semester and working with Parking and Transportation to find a possible solution. Below is a summary from the University that explains the road construction project necessitating these adjustments.

“The Knoll area around the Lab School will undergo significant underground work and road closures during a 2 phased process that will happen this summer and next summer. The first phase starts the Monday after finals, May 16th, with a possible end date of October 31. The end date is dependent on weather, such as heavy rain, during the summer. The East River Road, from University Avenue to the stop signs between Ed Sciences and ICD, will be completely redone. This includes sidewalks, the metered parking, and the stop sign intersection near the Lab School entrance. This means East River Road will be closed throughout the project, starting at University Avenue. Pillsbury Drive, between the East River Road and Pleasant Street will also be closed. This is the road that leads to the Lab School drop off and pick up area. The one-way access road to ICD will only be accessible via the River Road coming from the south (Elliot Hall) and will be majorly impacted during this project. Buildings in this area will experience noise and vibrations, construction smells, and possible air quality concerns due to construction dust/debris. Utilities may be impacted at times. The Dinkytown Greenway will also have a closure behind the Education Sciences Building at some point during the project.”

We will send out information to families about our plans for summer as soon as we have them!
