The First day of school is right around the corner. Let's work together to keep everyone safe on the roads and sidewalks! Here are some helpful reminders for drivers, students, and parents.

Walking Safety Tips:

  • Use eye contact and hand signals to communicate before crossing to ensure you are seen.
  • Listen for oncoming cars. Cars can be hidden behind trees, parked cars, or obstacles.
  • Use sidewalks when you can. If there is no sidewalk, walk facing oncoming traffic.
  • Where bright clothing or reflective gear when it gets dark. 
  • Walk with parents, other students, or a buddy. 
  • Follow directions from crossing guards and safety partrols.

Driving Safety Tips:

  • Park in legal parking spaces and avoid double parking or blocking driveways.
  • Follow school drop off rules and pickup rules.
  • Slow down.
  • Always yield to people crossing mid street, at crosswalks, or intersections.
  • Keep crosswalks, busstops, and driveways clear.
  • Know school bus paddle laws.
