There are 43 intersections where crossing guards are stationed. Parents, please speak to your children about crossing in marked intersections with the assistance of these crossing guards.

Although pedestrians have the right of way, tell children to look to make sure motorists are complying with this law.

Motorists need to pay attention to pedestrians crossing, especially in the areas of town where the schools are located.

Please slow down and watch out for children as they may not always heed our warnings and use marked intersections.

We are all responsible for making sure these simple rules get followed.

I am looking forward to a happy and healthy school year.
