Be Safe, Be Seen

February is “Be Safe. Be Seen.” Month
Wednesday, February 6th is our monthly Walk & Roll to School Day! This month’s theme is “Be Safe, Be Seen.” Walking or biking together to school or elsewhere is a chance to practice road safety skills like looking both ways before crossing the street; paying attention to traffic; and acting in a predictable manner. Best of all, it’s a time to be playful, connect, and have fun together!

We encourage everyone to walk, bike, carpool or ride the bus to school. When you do so, it is great to wear bright or reflective items of clothing and lights in addition to practicing safely getting to and from school. If you live a long way from school, try parking a ten minute walk from school and walking the rest of the way. It will wake up your child’s brain for learning and you’ll avoid the parking lot traffic!

Traffic Safety at Edgewood
This is a reminder to please drive slowly as you drop off or pick up your kids at Edgewood. We have received reports of cars driving too fast on the driveway road that connects our two parking lots. Please remember – safety first!
Also, when dropping off kids, please do not stop in the bus lanes. We want all transportation to run smoothly at Edgewood.
