Car Drop Off Lane Safety

Inclement Weather Safety

            Winter weather is now upon us which brings about situations where safety is a concern.   During bad weather there is an increase in students being driven to school.  Please pay careful attention to students crossing the street and drive slowly in and around the school.  When weather is bad students tend to hurry and don’t always exercise the same caution as they do in better weather.  Also be reminded to drop off students in the lane closest to the school.  The lane closest to Detroit is a drive through only lane.  Students should never be dropped off in the middle lane.  When students are dropped off in this lane they have to cross over a lane of traffic and is very dangerous.  Traffic moves very smoothly and quickly especially when we all are courteous and patient with each other.

            I would also like to remind students that throwing snowballs is strictly prohibited.  Although throwing snowballs may seem like a harmless childhood activity, in larger crowds it can become extremely dangerous.   Bystanders can get hit with a snowball causing injury or a student could run into traffic to avoid a snowball.  Please remind your children to refrain from snowball throwing to and from school.
