    08/05/2016

    The safety and well-being of our children is every parent’s and caregiver’s primary goal. Please keep in mind the following tips to ensure a safe start to the school year for our students:

    • Know your school’s student drop off and pick up procedures
    • Attend your school’s Back to School Night to learn details specific to traffic safety
    • Obey the traffic safety patrol at all times when near a school
    • Be an example to your children – park legally, look both ways before crossing the street, and cross streets only within crosswalks when traffic is clear
    • When driving near a school, slow down and watch for children in or near the street
    • Do not let students out of your car while in the street. Pull to the side and let students out safely, ensuring they use a crosswalk if needed
    • Be prepared for heavy traffic in the morning and afternoon hours while students are picked up and dropped off at school
    • Be aware of school buses and watch for children entering or exiting the bus
