Please note that the Wilson School District recently received a communication from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation regarding the mid-block pedestrian crossing on Van Reed Road, from St. Ignatius to Wilson High School. In their communication they indicated that this crosswalk is not permitted by PennDOT and, therefore, must be removed immediately.
As a result of this communication, effective immediately, there will no longer be a crossing guard at this location and the crosswalk lines will be removed, creating a potentially dangerous situation for anyone who chooses to cross at this location. Pedestrians can continue to cross at the crosswalks at Berks Place and Dwight Street.
Thank you for your attention to this matter. The safety and security of our students and community members is our top priority.
