Parent Slide #2 School Zone Laws SLOW DOWN - 20 mph max. –7am to 9am –2pm to 4pm BE ALERT – Handheld cell phones prohibited – $200 fine NO PARKING cars along either side of Savannah Dr. & none on the south side of Inglewood STOP for the RED flashing lights on buses which indicate children are getting on or off. Wait until the red lights stop, the stop sign is withdrawn, and the bus begins moving before driving again.
Parent Slide #3 Drop Off/Pick Up Tips Leave early so you aren’t rushed on your way to work. Back to school often means congestion and longer commute times. Practice extra caution in bad weather. Drive with your headlights on, so children and other drivers can see you. Drive without distractions. Don't use handheld cell phones for calls or texting, eat/drink or attend to personal grooming. Don’t load/unload students before the flagpole or in the parking lot due to an increased risk of being hit by a vehicle. Look for cones & listen for staff instructions at the crosswalk. Keep the line safely moving – no parking or unloading.
