Feedback from the Field: We Need Your Support at Drop-Off & Dismissal!
Parking in Red Zones - Curbs which are painted red should not be used as parking or waiting spots. When vehicles are in these areas, they turn what should be a safe corner/crosswalk into a source of danger for our students and their families.
I realize it may be frustrating when trying to find a parking/waiting spot and none are available; no one likes to wait or drive around numerous times looking for a spot. However, using an option that puts the safety of others at risk should certainly not be an option at all. Some families report that there are usually spots on Vernon Street (the street closest to the 405 freeway). Perhaps give that a try.
On the same note, double parking has also been reported as a safety concern. Double parking is defined parking a vehicle alongside one that is already parked at the side of the road. Not only can it cause a safety risk, but it also stops the flow of traffic causing more wait time and frustration.
- Lead a Structured Game/Activity
- Supervise a Specific Area (Basketball Courts, Tetherball Courts, Jungle Gym, etc)
- Roam the Playground to Assist Where Needed
Our students could always use extra support to provide words of encouragement, reminders of safety rules, ambassadors of positive social-emotional interaction, etc. If you are a VIPS and would like to help from the hours of 11:45-1:10 (or any portion thereof) on any or all days of the week, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are not a VIPS, but would like to become one, please visit our main office and ask for a VIPS application (or download it from the lbschools.net website).
Thank you, in advance, for your consideration!
