“Tornado Alley Ready for Drivers”
“Over the summer, an access road was built between Tahoma Blvd and the back of YHS student parking. This will dramatically reduce the traffic on Yelm Ave. With any change, it will take a little getting use to. Please remember to go to the Tahoma Blvd light when arriving at school and reduce your speed to 20mph down Tornado Alley. There are also speed bumps to watch out for.
“Upon entering the parking lot, students will turn right to park. Parents dropping off students will turn left before the megaplex portable and pull forward in the drop off zone. On the first day of school, Yelm HS staff and Yelm PD will be visible to help direct traffic at Yelm Ave and at the Tornado Alley entrance of the student parking lot.”
