Due to the traditionally large turnout for the Middlesex Middle School [Monday, June 17] and Darien High School [Tuesday, June 18] graduations, both of which are held at DHS, the Darien Police Department advises that the following traffic regulations are being put into effect.
— an announcement from Darien Police Department. This article will be republished on Darienite.com closer to the events this coming Monday and Tuesday.
The regulations are for the area surrounding Darien High School on June 17 and 18, 2019 starting at 3:30 pm:
—All traffic will enter the High School grounds via Noroton Avenue. Vehicular traffic will not be permitted to enter the area via High School Lane, Nutmeg Lane, Holly Lane, or Libby Lane. Officers will be present to direct all vehicles to appropriate and designated parking areas.
—All vehicles will be properly parked so as to facilitate and expedite the safe flow of vehicles at the conclusion of the graduation ceremony.
—Vehicles will be parked on both sides of Nutmeg Lane and High School Lane facing away from Darien High School.
—Motorists are asked to pay particular attention to posted “No Parking” areas. Previous experiences have resulted in illegally parked vehicles blocking driveways or restricting access to emergency vehicles. Improperly parked vehicles causing restrictions of this type will be towed.
—As on-site parking is limited for an event of this type, all attendees and guests are requested to carpool.
Darien police will be on site to assist with traffic at both events. We thank you for your assistance in making these graduations run smoothly so that the graduates, their friends, and their families can enjoy these important milestones.
Editor’s note on Darienite’s announcements policy: Darienite.com usually edits announcements slightly (in this case, that includes the addition of boldface). If we add or remove significant information, that’s noted. We often remove wording that looks like advertising from businesses’ and even nonprofits’ announcements. We try to link to online versions of the original announcement, and we state the source of the announcement. Newspapers typically rewrite announcements, but we seldom see the value of that.
