Safety - Safety - Safety. It is all about the Safety of our children as walk, ride bicycles, and are dropped off by cars and buses at our schools.
We as a community need to ensure the safety of our children as we hurry to drop them off them to school in the morning and pick them in the afternoon. At several schools in West Roseville this morning drop off and afternoon pick up has become a dangerous situation. Children walking and riding bicycles between cars as they rush to drop off or pick up other children. It is just a matter of time before someone gets hurt... or worse.
Drop & Walk is an alternative location where parents can drop their students off for school to avoid school parking lot congestion and to keep the streets in the immediate vicinity of the school clear. In addition, Drop & Walks promote safe drop off zones, raises driver awareness of student walking, bring the school and community together to promote safe routes for all.
