The Slice

One view of new Jefferson Elementary

I walked my bike into the Albertson's at 37th and Grand a few minutes ago.

I reported to the clerk selling me a newspaper that auto traffic right around the store at this time of day is calmer since Jefferson Elementary School moved.

“Yeah,” she said. “They built their own parking lot this time. What a concept.”

To be fair, the old school was in place long before the grocery store. It was not built at a time when a high percentage of kids got dropped off and picked up.

If anything, the store was the interloper.

Still, the store parking lot serving as a corral for circling parents never seemed altogether ideal.
