Mega Loop map thumbnailMega-Loop Map

You will enter the north drive on the side of the junior high closest to the Bedford Public Library. You will travel behind the junior high and then continue towards the stadium, you will follow the new drive that circles around the north side of the high school building, runs parallel with the bus depot parking lot, turns to run along the south side of the junior high before passing behind the junior high and finally exiting out onto Jackman Road on the same drive that you entered on. You can drop off students at both the high school and the junior high using the Mega-Loop. A gate located in front of the stadium will be closed during the arrival and dismissal times that will prevent thru traffic from the junior high and high school. Please follow the direction of school personnel.
