CTA Goodman Friday News

August 5, 2022

Message from the Principal

Gator Families, Happy Friday! I bet some of you are wondering "Why is Mrs. Graham standing on the corner of Knox and Coronado Street?" Well, let me explain. I received phone calls from our neighbors stating our traffic was blocking Knox Rd. So, I am trying to be mindful of our neighbors and other traffic that would like to travel down Knox.

Only so many cars can fit into the turn lane for parent pick-up and drop-off on the west. I appreciate all of you stopping when I signal to stop.

The safety of our students, parents, and community is very important to me. I hope you understand.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Mrs. Graham
