Saline Area Schools Superintendent Scot Graden wants the county to make Campus Parkway a higher priority when the road commission plows and salts roads after a snowstorm.
Graden said he continues to hear from parents who are dissatisfied with the attention the road receives after snow fall. Campus Parkway, located in Pittsfield Township, is serviced by the Washtenaw County Road Commission. It’s the road serving Saline High School and Harvest Elementary School.
“I continue to get feedback from the community about the attention that road gets relative to other secondary roads,” Graden said at Tuesday’s Board of Education meeting. “It is my intention to send a formal letter to the Wasthenaw County Road Commission asking for it to be prioritized. Not only for when we do have school, but we don’t have school.”
Graden said prioritizing Campus Parkway for plowing and salting is a matter of community safety.
On the subject of safety, Graden said he was pleased to receive a timely phone call from Saline’s new Chief of Police, Jerrod Hart, after a school bus crash on Industrial Drive Monday morning.
There were no students on the bus and nobody was injured.
“He called me right away. It’s nice to have that partnership there and I look forward to enhancing our relationship with the Saline Police Department,” Graden said.
