What's Going On In The World Of #FAPBG-Wk. of April 2

Week in Review

We were so happy to have everyone back this week and start off the 4th quarter. This will be a fast few months full of fun activities, accountability measures, and celebrations of our accomplishments. Tomorrow is a teacher work day and our teachers will be working with local SWAT team members to increase their knowledge and response options if ever faced with a "code red" type scenario. Though these types of trainings are unpleasant to say the least, they are becoming more and more necessary and we feel it is important that our teachers are well-trained to protect their students and themselves.

Pick Up Traffic

One Wednesday, March 14th, we received another visit from members of the Palm Beach Gardens Police Department in regards to our dismissal car line. They brought with them photographs of our parents causing traffic issues on Hood Road prior to our elementary dismissal. Lining up early for dismissal creates a road hazard for motorists on Hood Road, as it causes drivers to have to drive on the wrong side of the road to go around our line. Please be advised that PBGPD will be sending additional units prior to elementary dismissal to warn and then ticket anyone lined up early and blocking Hood Road.
