Traffic Safety concerns

The Fallon office has received an increasing number of reports about both adult drivers and student pedestrians engaging in dangerous behavior during the morning and afternoon commute to school. Please help us keep all our children safe by reminding your child to make eye contact with drivers and to cross the streets only within the marked crosswalks. In addition, if your children ride their bikes or skateboards to school, please remind them to walk bikes and skateboards through the crosswalks and to wear a properly-fitted helmet at all times. As adult drivers, of course, we all need to pay particularly close attention to students on foot and bikes as we make our way through the drop-off lanes, parking lots, and local streets. Thank you for your continuing support of policies and procedures that keep our children safe.
