Please Observe No Parking Signs for Sporting Events

The district would like to remind our community to please observe No Parking signs for sporting events, in particular on South Schodack Road and behind the High School. The only parking places for athletic events are the High School and Middle School parking lots. Due to concerns about safety, the district has asked Schodack police to enforce these rules and violators may be ticketed.
