Driving Safety


We need to remind our school community to practice safe driving. Speeding through morning carline has become an increasingly dangerous issue among the several other unsafe driving practices we have observed lately, such speeding through the residential area around our school, distracted drivers, drivers unsafely blocking traffic and more. Not only do we observe these dangerous practices occurring on almost a daily basis, but we have received several complaints from individuals who live nearby our school. There are reduced speeds in school zones and residential areas for a reason. Failure to follow the California driving laws, especially in areas of reduced speeds, will result in serious and sometimes fatal consequences.
