This will be in effect through the duration of the construction (except during school hours, whereby the turn-around drive way must be used (or thru Youell).You can access our parking lot through Youell, without problems. If you have driven on Carlton in the last six months you will welcome this change to come on Carlton. Thank you for your understanding and as always please watch for children and use caution when driving around the church and school.
