Safe Walking Routes

Safe Walking Routes

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Neighbors:

Your students’ safety is of great concern to us. To ensure their safe passage to and from school, we are providing a Safe Walking Routes Map for your use. Our local law enforcement officers and municipal safety experts have recommended these routes.

We encourage students to walk along well-­‐traveled sidewalks, to walk with other students whenever possible, to use crosswalks and to follow the directions of the crossing guards. We also encourage parents to become familiar with the safest walking route to school and to walk this route with their children before the school year begins.

Please review the procedures for school drop-­‐off/pick-­‐up and bus zones. Remind your students to exit cars on the side closest to the school sidewalk and to use the crosswalk with an adult when walking from the east parking lot to the school. Students may not cross the crosswalk unattended. Do not drop students off in the East (faculty & bus) parking lot.

You may park and accompany your children across the crosswalk. Please review the map carefully. Feel free to contact the school if you have questions. Thank you for your help as we all work to keep our students safe.

Sincerely, Mr. Pullan

Mr. Pullan
