New parking lot at middle school

Installing a new parking lot at Motley-Staples Middle School was one of the summer projects taken on by the school district’s buildings and grounds department. LeRoy Peterson, Building and Grounds Supervisor, said the new one-way parking lot (which is larger) will have its entrance at the south end and its exit at the west end. This should help alleviate blocking of vehicles at the school’s entrance.

Later, class five dirt was installed, followed by the new asphalt. (Staples World photos by Dawn Timbs)
