School Zone Reminders
Motorists are reminded to use caution and keep speeds to the posted 10 miles around the Kennett Middle School/Conway Elementary School Campus. More children are walking and riding their bikes to school as the weather continues to improve.
Also, we understand that parents/guardians are anxious to exit the campus before the busses. This is presenting a safety hazard to our students. It should be noted that the west entrance of the middle school (by the railroad tracks) is posted for bus traffic only between the hours of 7:00am to 7:20am and 2:30pm to 2:50pm. If your vehicle is in the bus loop during those times, you should expect a wait.
You may avoid the KMS bus loop congestion by picking up your child on the east side of the building near the Superintendent's office. Should you choose to do this, please keep in mind that for the safety of all the children the speed limit is still 10 miles per hour.

Residents of Mount Washington Valley may have noticed signs in Conway Village noting the lane closure for the bridge on Route 16 over the Saco River. All northbound traffic will be rerouted beginning March 1st. The bridge will be open one way to southbound traffic only. Northbound traffic will be rerouted via Rt 113 through Center Conway or West Side Rd & the Covered Bridge. While there are only a few bus routes that will be greatly impacted, we could see delays with all school bus transportation.
The current bus routes that will see the most impact will be to families and students living north of the Rt. 16 Bridge in Conway at the following bus stops: Benson’s Trailer Park, Lamplighter Park, Lock Shop Loop, Poliquin Drive, Conway Pines and any stops in between. Those route adjustments are listed below for Kennett Middle, Kennett High and Conway Elementary School students. We will continue with these route adjustments until the end of the 2016/2017 school year. As always, we will do our best to get students to and from school as safely and efficiently as possible. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!
