Asked & Answered: New Hampstead High School sign


If you have driven into New Hampstead High School, you may have noticed something just doesn't seem right.

WTOC viewer Estelline Beamon asked why is there a freshly painted turning lane leading into an area with two "Do Not Enter" signs posted at the school.

"Someone's child is probably going to get into a wreck at this school entrance or exit (or whatever it's supposed to be). When exiting that parking lot, there is actually a white arrow on the ground in the left lane to guide entering vehicles," she said.

Here is what WTOC found - driving north and south down Little Neck Road off the New Hampstead High campus you will see the Do Not Enter signs and the turning lane into them.

The Savannah-Chatham Public Schools were notified by WTOC about the situation, and a week later we were told the signs would be removed – they were. City officials said the signs were likely left over from the construction of the school and left up by mistake.

Now, it is gone and the problem is solved.

City spokesman Bret Bell said the city had no idea about the do not enter signs or the issue until WTOC brought it to the school district's attention and they took it to the city.
