Let’s slow down and drive more carefully for our kids and community by Dr. Rob Anderson

As Superintendent, I take the safety of all 31,000 students we serve very seriously. In the past few weeks since school has started we have had several accidents in which cars have hit students walking or biking to school. Thankfully, none of the students have been seriously injured, but it has certainly been alarming to my staff and I at Boulder Valley School District.
As you may know, the Boulder Valley School District strongly encourages students, their families and staff to walk, bike or take alternative transportation options to school because it is good for our physical and environmental health, plus it helps to alleviate the traffic around our schools making arrival and dismissal at our buildings far safer for everyone involved.
We are asking everyone to be careful as we Share Our Roads. Everyone plays a role. By slowing down and being cautious, together, we can avoid tragedy in the future.
This is an especially important message for drivers. Behind the wheel of our often multi-ton vehicles – we all have a higher level of responsibility – because careless actions can be deadly. Please slow down and keep an eye out for students, especially in school zones and around crosswalks. Several of the students hit this year were in crosswalks, something that is especially concerning.
Let’s slow down and pay attention. Our kids’ lives could depend on it.
Fall and Winter Watering
Dry air, low precipitation, little soil moisture, and fluctuating temperatures are characteristics of fall and winter in many areas of Colorado. Often there is little or no snow cover to provide soil moisture from October through March. Trees, shrubs, perennials and lawns under these conditions may be damaged if they do not receive supplemental water. Here are some great tips for watering during this season.
Dog Park Closure
For the safety of residents and their pets, the Dog Park will be  TEMPORARILY CLOSED  beginning Monday, September 9th for approximately four weeks during parking lot construction. Yard Waste Site will remain open. Note : Alternative parking for the skate park available on Coal Ridge Drive. Park and walk over. For updates or questions, please call 303-499-3675 ext. 171.
