PTA Weekly Update – November 14th

Walk and Roll


Safe Routes to School/Walk and Roll Wednesdays did a walk through the neighborhood on November 4 with Principal Mayer, police, city engineers, an independent engineering company and a representative from the Department of Health. Our school was one of 10 in the county to be included in a grant that allowed the analysis to happen. 4 parents from the school shared their concerns over traffic trouble spots that make it difficult for children to feel safe. No definite plans were made, but concerns were noted. We may see some changes in the new year. Thanks to Jeff Kamariotis, Tiah-Marie Foley, and John Moe for making the time to work on this. – Connie Sultana
