Message To Parents

One of the most challenging issues at any school is the safe drop off and pick up of our students. Safety is our number one priority and it is very important that everyone follows the city of Phoenix traffic laws while dropping off and picking up your students each day. One of our major problem areas is on 31st Drive, just to the east of our school near the dismissal gate. We ask that you please be respectful of our community members and obey all posted signs that say no parking and no stopping on the street. Also, cars are never allowed to stop and drop off students between the 15 mph school zone signs. This includes the gate at the driveway on Ocotillo Road. It is not a legal or safe place to stop and drop off your students. Police have been notified and will be working with our community to make sure everyone obeys the city of Phoenix laws for the safety of our students. Thank you for your support of the school and the community!

 

Dr. Steve Murosky, Principal

 


Uno de los retos más importantes para cualquier escuela es que cuando ustedes dejen y recojan a sus hijos ellos se mantengan seguros.  La seguridad es nuestra prioridad número uno y es muy importante que todos sigan las leyes de tráfico de la ciudad de Phoenix mientras dejamos y recogemos a nuestros estudiantes cada día.  Una de nuestras áreas más problemáticas está localizada en 31st Dr., al este de nuestra escuela junto al portón de la salida.  Les pedimos que por favor sean respetuosos con los miembros de nuestra comunidad y obedezcan todos los letreros que indican no estacionarse o parar en la calle.  También les recordamos que nunca se deben parar y dejar a los niños dentro de la zona escolar de los letreros de 15mph .  Esto incluye el portón de entrada en Ocotillo Road.  No es una área legal ni segura para parar y dejar a sus estudiantes. La policía ha sido notificada y estarán trabajando con nuestra comunidad para asegurar que todos obedezcan las leyes de la ciudad de Phoenix para la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes.  ¡Gracias por su apoyo a la escuela y la comunidad!
