ROAD CLOSURE FROM THE CITY: There will be a street closure on Clark Street between Whitener and Themis starting Monday, September 11. Terry W. Kitchen Central Junior High and ECC families will still be able to drive down Whitener. Our faculty and staff will still be able to access the parking lot between the pool and the track. The only street this will impact is Clark, and it's a very small portion of the road. Hopefully, the closure will be wrapped up before the end of next week.
