I am NOT making this up! As seen in the school newsletter this month:
“We are having some difficulties when parents are going through the parent pick-up line that places our children in danger. Please keep in mind the following procedures:
Parents need to move up the line as soon as space becomes available.
Parents should not stop their vehicles in the cross-walk.
On average 50 – 60% of parents are on the cell phone while they are driving and picking up their children. These drivers are not giving their full attention to driving which is extremely dangerous around teens who do not always pay attention to their surroundings.
Lastly, to the parent in the SUV who drives while holding the cell phone in the right hand, a diet coke in the left, and steers with her knees, please consider the lesson you are modeling for your child.”
