The Newtown Police Commission agreed to a 2-week safety test period of school buses using an alternate accessway to Reed Intermediate School. The Board of Education voted to change school start times and some buses are looking to use Old Farm Road between 8:50am and 9am. All-Star Transportation believes this will alleviate traffic at the Mile Hill Road-Wasserman Way-Trades Lane intersection. Reed School custodial staff will chain and unchain the gates each morning. The Commission will meet March 6th and reevaluate the situation.
