STANFORD - Traffic flow at Stanford Elementary School is moving smoother, and safer, than ever, assistant principal Tim Godbey told the city council Thursday.
"Our mornings have never been any safer. The only problem we're having is between 3 and 3:30," said Godbey.
On the first day of school, Godbey said about 300 cars had to be directed, though now the number is closer to 200.
"We're predicting, with preschool starting on the 13th, that the number will rise," said Godbey.
Two concerned parents had attended the council meeting to present a petition, signed by almost 100 citizens, requesting there be a traffic officer at the school every day, helping parents to pick up their children without blocking Danville Avenue.
"There's just the concern of safety. We would like to see someone help direct traffic up there," Donna Caudill told the council.
