    Help Keep Our Students Safe!  

    Our students are being injured by vehicles at alarming rates.  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.  For tips on vehicle and pedestrian safely, visit
