School starts next week – expect delays, be courteous

Dakota Valley begins school Thursday, Aug. 19. As with every year, expect traffic delays on Northshore Drive. School opens at 7:45 a.m. and students exit the building at 3:10 p.m. Traffic backs up 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. and 2:45 to 3:45 p.m. DV activities are also beginning, so more traffic will be on Northshore Drive in the evenings. Reminder: There is no parking on the north side of Northshore Drive. Slow down, be respectful, let people onto Northshore from Streeter Drive and other roads that connect. Be a good neighbor.
