Parking at Marsden during the Main Block Rebuild
Staff, parents and visitors need to know that the five car parking spaces down by the Dance Studio are unavailable for parking during the day throughout the Main Block rebuild. Three of the current parks will be no parking at all times to allow trucks to get through and the remaining two will be reserved for the contractors.
We will also be putting an orange cone on the back drive by the Music room to remind students that they are not to walk down the back drive. Staff and visitors using the back drive way during school hours will need to move the cone and then replace it in its position or use the Donald St driveway. Thank you for your patience at this exciting time.
