Square Barn Campus Families,
We wanted to share with you a brief reminder about the importance of driving safely on our campus, especially during the busy pickup and dropoff times.
The recent school bus-related tragedies we’ve heard about in the news represent the worst nightmares of families and educators. They also serve as reminders that no one and no place is immune from the dangers of unsafe driving. We ask everyone to please heed these reminders to help ensure the safety of the more than 2,000 students who attend our schools everyday.
Unfortunately, we continue to see distracted driving on our roads, even in close proximity to our schools. Please refrain from texting, talking, surfing, or other use of devices while driving in a school zone.
We also are aware of the congestion that can occur during busy dropoff and pickup times. During these peak times especially, we urge drivers to remain patient and to heed traffic lanes and laws. Driving in the middle lane to avoid traffic backups is dangerous, and poses a particular risk to the buses entering and exiting our parking lots.
As we enter snow and ice season, the dangers listed above will only become more apparent. Now is the time to make a commitment to driving safely on our campus.
Our schools and the District have a team of dedicated individuals working together to make transportation go as smoothly as possible on our campus, and we appreciate your partnership in making our efforts successful. Thank you for your ongoing help in keeping our kids safe!
