Regular Public Entrance at Niedringhaus School Temporarily Closed

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013


Please continue to enter the Niedringhaus School library from State Street until Thursday, December 26.  On that date we will re-open the parking lot and the regular public entrance (the State Street entrance will be closed).  Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

Due to concrete work being redone, the regular public entrance into the Niedringhaus School facility will be closed Wednesday – Friday this week. We anticipate the regular entrance being re-opened on Saturday, December 21. A temporary entrance is being opened on the State Street side of the building – please pay close attention to signs pointing to the temporary entrance. This means the parking lot (former playground) will also be closed until Saturday. Please temporarily park on State Street starting tomorrow, Wednesday, December 18.  Thank you for your patience.
