Over the last month we have been working with representatives from the Branford Police Department, bus company, and BPS administration to review the morning traffic pattern at Branford High School to reduce traffic and backup on East Main Street.  

Beginning THIS THURSDAY, we will be adjusting the morning traffic pattern at Branford High School.  Please review the directions and attached maps for the new location for students being dropped off by car and bus.  We will have additional traffic support staff that will direct cars to the new drop-off point to help everyone with the transition.  

New BHS Traffic Pattern beginning Thursday, November 11:

Parent /Guardian Drop Off

  • Cars will enter from the Main Street entrance.

  • The front entrance loop at BHS will be closed to all car traffic in the morning.

  • Cars will proceed around the drive and stop near the athletic entrance across from the turf field.

  • Students will exit cars onto the sidewalk and enter the building via the ramp 

  • After cars drop off students, they will proceed around the building to the Main Street exit 

  • Cars exiting BHS will only be able to turn left.
