Castleberry ISD is very excited about the newest change on the horizon. During CISD's holiday break, the new construction and remodeling project at Irma Marsh Middle School is slated to begin. To provide a safe, smooth, traffic flow around IMMS, several changes are being implemented. District personnel and the City of River Oaks are working together to facilitate a smooth transition to the new procedures.

When students and staff return from Winter Break, they will be greeted by temporary construction zone fencing along the front of the school. Due to the proximity of the construction on Hagg Drive (the street that runs immediately in front of IMMS), changes to parking availability and traffic flow will be in effect.

Changes include a new drop-off/pick-up location for students, as well as new parking areas for parents. To drop-off or pick-up students, parents will still turn from Churchill onto Doyle and left on Hagg, but must then proceed past the IMMS main entrance and teh construction fencing to drop off students at the south end of the school near the gymnasium. Student drop-off in front of the main office will not be allowed. Parents who wish to park their vehicle in order to pick up their child will be allowed to do so in the parking lots directly in front of IMMS. Parking or stopping for any reason will no longer be allowed on Churchill, Harrisdale, Worthview, Blackstone, of Shear during the hours of 7:00 a.m. - 8:30 a.m. and from 3:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. In addition, during drop-off and pick-up hours only, Harrisdale Ave. and Worthview Drive will be one-way only (heading South) to help improve traffic flow.

Castleberry ISD and the City of River Oaks will be installing new signs in the area to remind everyone of the new rules, and CISD and River Oaks Police Officers will also be on hand to assist in the implementation of the new traffic flow. All changes will be in effect beginning January 9, 2019.

Castleberry is excited about the changes to Irma Marsh Middle School and is looking forward to serving the needs of middle school-aged students for many years to come.
