Student safety, traffic flow, and parking are critical issues for the Menlo Park City School District. MPCSD is committed to Safe Routes to School projects with Menlo Park and Atherton, which received funding from San Mateo County via the City/County Association of Governments.
There are two MPCSD Transportation Town Hall meetings where parents and neighbors can bring their questions about traffic and safety. Representatives from the City of Menlo Park, Town of Atherton and Menlo Park Police Department will be in attendance.
The Hillview/Oak Knoll Town Hall meeting will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 15 from 7:00 to 8:30 pm at the Hillview Performing Arts Center. The Encinal/Laurel Town Hall Meeting will be on Thursday, Jan. 23 from 7:00 to 8:30 pm at the Encinal large multipurpose room.
The District’s Safe Routes to School grant funded consultants to develop maps for MPCSD. The maps show recommended routes to each school within a one mile radius.
