Reminder: Traffic flow will continue to impacted by ongoing tree removal at TAE. Parking lot access and the flow of traffic will be impacted as the identified trees are removed. Please be careful as you drive through the TAE campus. Removal is currently focused around the Southeast corner of the TAE building nearest the District Office entrance.
Traffic flow through parking lots at TAE is currently impacted by tree removal. Please be careful when using the parking lots at TAE for the next week. Traffic patterns will be impacted. We will be attempting to keep the normal flow from being impacted during student arrival and at dismissal. Parking lot access may be limited during the course of the day from now until 9/22/2023 while we deal with our damaged and falling tree limb concerns. We are sorry for any inconvenience!
Tree Removal at TAE Wednesday Sept. 13, 2023 due to potential dangerous circumstances. Out of an abundance of caution we are having 7 trees taken down at the South end of the Thomas A. Edison HS building, near the District Office TOMORROW, Wednesday 9/13/2023. The traffic pattern heading South out of the parking lots will be adapted around this area at TAE. Over the past two weeks these trees have lost several large branches creating a safety concern. Having consulted with a tree agency it has been determined we need to immediately remove 7 trees which are in similar conditions to the one which has lost several large limbs. We are also engaging a tree expert to assess trees on both of our campuses as we know that many of them are older trees. While we do love the shade they offer, and how beautiful they can be, safety is our first priority.
