TRAFFIC DELAYS DUE TO GAOKAO
Plan for high traffic and a longer commute this week as local high school students will be taking the gaokao test from Wednesday-Friday, June 7-9. This does not affect WYIS students, though it may affect your commute to school.
If you have a WYIS parking pass, you should be able to enter and exit the school, but ONLY from the north/New Golden Harbor side of Boxue Lu and only by showing your parking pass identifying you as a WYIS parent.
Boxue Lu will be closed to general traffic those days, so please allow plenty of extra time to allow for alternate routes and very busy traffic. Walkers/bikers to WYIS should not be affected.
