MADISON, Ala. (WHNT) – Madison’s new James Clemens High School opens Monday. That will mean thousands more students, parents and teachers trying to get to work and school along busy County Line Road.
Liberty and Heritage Middle Schools, also located on County Line Road, use crossing guards at school entrances.
A traffic light and cross walk have already been installed at the entrance to James Clemens High School, but Madison City Schools Safety Coordinator Dennis James says there will be other watchful eyes to ensure student safety.
“At James Clemens the presence that’s going to be there on County Line will be the Madison Police Department and we’re going to monitor the flow of traffic and the flow of foot traffic too and that way we can assess our needs and make additions form that point.”
James Clemens High School is expected to have a student enrollment of more than 1,000.
