The safety of pedestrians, students, and staff, and those on bicycles, scooters, skateboards, and roller blades is a huge concern for staff, parents, and bus operators. The rule that skateboards, scooters, roller blades, and bicycles must be walked on and off of school property has been in place for many years. This has been discussed with the student population on numerous occasions.
As you can imagine, being a transfer school, we have children and parents from four schools moving about the property. There are also six school buses, Boys and Girls Club Van, and many vehicles.
If students choose to ride their bikes, scooters, skateboards, and roller blades on school property, they are compromising the safety of other students, parents, and staff. Parents will be notified. Should a second infraction occur, students will have their bike/skateboard/scooter/roller blades confiscated until the end of the next school day. A third infraction of this rule will result in your child not being allowed to ride to school for a determined number of days.
Please support the school in trying to provide a safer environment for all.
