Bike Rack Reminder

Parents, please remind your students each day to lock their bike at the racks at all times. In addition to, they must take their bicycles home every day after school. Please stress to your student, to not leave their bikes locked at the bike racks overnight. If students sign out early, they must wait for the custodian at the rack to receive their bikes. Also, our School Resource Officer, Ms. Fernandez, is leading the effort to keep student property safe by logging bicycle serial numbers and descriptions in the event a bike come up missing, making the return process quicker.

Thank you!

Mr. Williams
