Please take a few moments to talk to your students about the following safe procedures when walking to and from school:
Choose sidewalks or paths wherever possible, even if that means the trip will take a little longer.
Minimize the number of street crossings.
Cross the street safely: Stop at the curb or edge of the street. Look left, right, left and behind you and in front of you for traffic. Wait until no traffic is coming and begin crossing. Keep looking for traffic until you have finished crossing. Walk, don’t run across the street.
Avoid busy, high-speed or multi-lane roads, wherever possible.
Look for traffic at every driveway and intersection.
Be aware of drivers in parked cars that may be getting ready to move.
Obey all traffic signs and signals.
We would also ask that our parents take into consideration the following points when driving on and around our school:
Adhere to the 25 mph zone, and slow down and obey all traffic laws and speed limits;
Comply with local school drop-off and pick-up procedures;
When driving in the school parking lots, slow down and be mindful of students crossing;
Refrain from unloading children at locations across the street from the school;
Cross the street in the crosswalks only;
Avoid stopping or double parking on crosswalks to let children out of the car;
Prepare to stop for a school bus when overhead yellow lights are flashing;
Watch for children walking or biking to school when backing out of a driveway and in areas near a school; and
Forgo the use of cell phones!
Be respectful to neighbors and their property
