School Safety
Finally we'd like to remind all to model good behavior by being responsible and considerate in the drop off lane before and after school. We have heard several complaints from parents lately about people parking and leaving cars unattended in the drop off lane, especially after school, The drop off lane is not parking. You must stay with your car and move forward when there is space while you are waiting. If you park and leave your car it causes traffic to back up on Del Monte and encourages people to drive unsafely to pass parked cars while kids are walking in the lane. Review this awesome video of drop off:
Let's be safe and courteous at school!
