Dear Center Families,
Attached is the message from the Department of Public Works regarding the work to replace sidewalks. Thank-you for talking with your child about taking special caution if they are walking or bike riding in the area where the work is being completed.
I also want to request that you talk with your child about courtesy and safety when riding a bike to and from school. Students should slow down when approaching walkers and signal in some way that they are approaching from behind. We can teach students to slow down and to call out, "On your left", same as one would do on a bicycle trail. We have reports from citizens and from our students that bikers are racing past them, sometimes forcing them off the sidewalk.
Thank-you for reinforcing that courtesy while riding bicycles will keep everyone safe.
Donna Hutton, Principal
