Blue Zone Safety Reminder: Please read this important information and discuss it with any caregivers who may bring your child(ren) to or from school:

Teachers and Parents alike have reported observing two very dangerous practices:
  • Drivers backing up in the blue zone. The blue zone is a moving (forward) lane only.
  • Drivers opening the rear, overhead door of mini-vans from the front seat, allowing children to enter/exit the vehicle while the door is lifting, potentially hooking children's coats in the process
  • Children being told to walk around and enter the car from the street side NOT the curb

Everyone's cooperation is required for the Blue Zone to operate safely and expeditiously. 

Thank you.
