Keeping our kids safe on the road is extremely important.
We would like to thank those parents/caregivers that take road safety seriously. We certainly would not like to hear that one of our children is seriously injured or worse.
However, there have been repeated offences of parents opening car doors on the street side of the car to let off children. PLEASE DO NOT let your children out on the STREET SIDE. This practice is illegal and very dangerous! As the streets around the school are very busy (and narrow), there have been some close calls. In fact, this week one parent decided to leave an obnoxious note on a car that alerted him to this practice.

PLEASE use common sense to keep our children safe!
