Let’s Work Together to Keep Our Students Safe
Our students are being injured by vehicles at alarming rates. Since school
opened this year, nine students have been struck and injured by vehicles
throughout the county. Please do your part to keep our students safe. Watch
out for pedestrians and bicycles. Expect children to be walking or riding
bikes to and from school or their assigned bus stop between the hours of 6
am – 9 am and 1 pm – 5 pm. Obey the speed limits and stay alert. Urge your
friends and neighbors to use caution when driving before and after school.
We must change this trend and work together to keep our students safe.
