The start of a new school year brings a variety of issues, but traffic safety is everyone’s responsibility. Remember to:
If you are a parent who will be dropping off children at Walker Jr. High or Kennedy High, do not stop in the “No Stopping” zones on Walker Street in front of the schools, and never allow children to exit your vehicle while stopped in traffic lanes; it is dangerous.
If your child walks to school, remind them to cross at designated crosswalks and obey pedestrian traffic signals.
If your child rides his or her bicycle to school, make certain they wear a bicycle helmet and travel in the designated bicycle lane with the flow of traffic.
We also ask parents to take the necessary time to instruct their children about traffic safety.
