Keeping Our Students Safe

August 2014 ~ Pine City Elementary

Keeping our students safe is something all of us want. Through our school's strategic planning meetings, concerns for drop off and pick up were brought forth. The following items are to inform you about our strategies for student safety.

Drive with Caution ~ Respect Crossing Guards

School busses begin to arrive at our school around 7:45 am. During this time, many parents are also dropping off their children. Please remember to drive with caution! This is a busy time and keeping our students safe requires everyone to do their part.

At the end of the day, the busses arrive around 2:35 pm. From 2:40 - 2:50, our front entrance is a bustling place with around 875 students.

We have student crossing guards at the Catholic Church intersection, __________, and at Hwy 61. Please adhere to the crossing guards flags.

Please drive slowly! Please be alert! I thank you in advance!

Use Cross Walks

This is a safety reminder for parents and students to use cross walks and crossing guards. We discuss with the students how to cross a road safely. Parents and guardians, this is an opportunity for you to show your children how to be safe when crossing the street.

No access to back parking lot for drop off and pick up

A change for student safety is the addition of crossing guards at the entrance to the Early Childhood Parking Lot. During the times of 7:30 - 8:05 and 2:15 - 3:00, the parking lot will not be accessible for individuals to pick up their children.
