RE: Oak Street Resurface and Water Main Project
I would like to inform our Turrill community that starting Monday, September 26, 2016, the City of Lapeer will be closing Oak Street to daily traffic until November 11, 2016.
The City of Lapeer will begin a project to resurface the street and replace a 12” water main on Oak Street from Turrill Avenue to McCormick Street. During the project Oak Street will be closed to normal traffic.
The City has advised us to have all school traffic use Summit St. off of M-24 to access our Turrill west parking lot/drop-off. The city will maintain open our driveway entrance from Oak street during construction. (Please see enclosed map for traffic flow.)
We are requesting all of our Turrill community members to enter our west parking lot from Summit St, off of M-24. Then continue around our parking lot and exit school grounds onto Elm st, making a right hand turn only to keep traffic flowing. Proceed east to Madison St, go north on Madison to Turrill Ave. to exit the neighborhood. Following this traffic flow pattern will give our school the least amount of traffic issues possible during this period of construction.
We appreciate everyone’s cooperation on this matter.

Turrill Year-Round Elementary School utilizes a research-based, balanced calendar approach to teaching students and operating an early fives through fifth grade elementary school. Students and staff at Turrill reduce the traditional summer vacation by attending school in the month of August. The month spent in August is then spread out during the school year with additional breaks from the traditional classroom experience. The extra weeks off during the school year are filled with volunteer intersession weeks created around a theme. Students and staff are in school the same number of days as traditional schools. The title "year-round" comes from the classification the state uses due to the start date being prior to Labor Day.
