Where Are Crossing Guards Needed?
The Safe Routes to School work group will be reviewing requests for school crossing guards this spring. March 4 is the deadline to let the city staff know you’d like to see a crossing guard in a certain location. To make a request, please complete the following form: https://arcg.is/0jqTLK. If you’d like to support efforts to encourage more students to walk, bike, and wheel at your school, please reach out to Laura McCulloch, Lawrence-Douglas County Public Health community health equity specialist, at email@example.com.
Annual Registration is Just Around the Corner!
The district soon will request you to complete Annual Student Registration to enroll your student for next year. You will be able to verify your contact information, update your student's health history and consider consents for field trips and surveys. Be on the lookout next week for an email from USD #497 about this important process. Annual Registration will have an April 1 deadline.
