As the 2023-24 school year has begun, traffic at White Bear Lake Area High School - North Campus has settled into a regular pattern at the Bald Eagle Avenue side of the building, which is serving as the current main entrance with construction happening on the Division Avenue side of the building.
When school begins in September of 2024 and the building houses students in grades nine through 12, traffic patterns will shift and be shared between the east and west sides of the building. An additional 561 parking spots will be accessed from the Division Avenue side of the school, doubling the parking currently available on the campus. A second drop-off/pickup loop will also be created on the Division Ave side to give families additional options and help distribute traffic flow throughout the site.
A separate buses-only lot that will be shared between Central Middle School and the high school will move buses away from the front of the buildings to make loading and unloading safer. Special Education and Activity Buses will continue to enter at specific locations on the Bald Eagle side of the building. The future changes to bus traffic have been planned to eliminate congestion created with the mix of car and bus traffic currently experienced at both sites.
