Barricades and fencing are there for your safety, please do not walk around.   Please also advise, that student walkers are not allowed access to the WYE grounds from the north side of the building, again the barricades, fencing that was placed by the construction team are here for everyone's safety.  Moving forward, please do not access the north side of the WYE building for access to entrance of the school.
