6. Let’s watch our speed at drop-off and pick-up times!

The safety of our children is always one of our top priorities. From keeping a safe environment to the speed of vehicles around our school. We have been observing that many motorists do not slow down even when someone is standing at the crosswalk. Therefore, we contacted the local authorities and they are posting an officer in the mornings and afternoons by our school to ensure that speed limits are maintained.
