**EFFECTIVE  JANUARY  23, 2023**

In an attempt to help with traffic safety the Oshkosh Police Department is implementing the following change on the corner of Bismarck Street and Eagle Street:  

If you are going East on Bismarck you are required to take a right hand turn.  
Police officers will be out to assist with this new change.

~ Please Slow Down ~

The corner of Bismarck and Eagle Streets can be especially dangerous for our students before and after school.  

Please slow down and watch for pedestrians. 

Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our students safe!
