Keep our kids safe - please drive slowly and safely!

Dear Families,

Did you know Creekside works with the CCC Public Works Dept., the CHP, the CCC Sheriff's Dept., Alamo Creek HOA, and our students to help keep our kids safe on their trip to and from school each day! In addition to all of this, we are continuing our student education component around pedestrian and bicycle safety by inviting Street Smarts to work with students during assemblies and a bike rodeo this year (thank you Creekside PTA for organizing this). You can help too by making sure you drive slowly and carefully while picking13379763001393999531DriveSlow.svg.hi.png up and dropping off your children at school.  If you are not able to walk/ride to and from school with your child, have them join a group of children and adults that are also walking or riding. More people together is safer!

 

Please remember to:

  • Use the designated drop-off and pick-up area along the front of the school (double-parking while dropping off students on Charbray street is not permitted). 
  • Be mindful of the crosswalks. Do not enter a crosswalk or intersection when children are inside crosswalk. When you think it is safe to proceed, do so very slowly. Teach children to make eye contact with the driver. Drivers/pedestrians/cyclists should follow the instructions of the crossing guard.
  • Cross using the Charbray/Massara crosswalk so that a crossing guard is present (please do not jay walk across the streets). For safety reasons, students walking home from school alone are instructed to use this crosswalk even if it is not the most direct route (the extra exercise to retrace some steps is good for all).
  • Have your son/daughter riding bikes/scooters/skates wear a helmet and stop to walk across all intersections after making eye contact with drivers. 
  • Be aware of "no parking" signs, fire hydrants, and other fire areas (like the fire lane that connects to Charbray Street). Fines for blocking these are significant. 
  • Follow the posted speed limit signs. The streets in our neighborhood are all posted at 25 MPH, but the slower the better! Please drive very slowly and carefully when children are present. 
  • Specifically in the TK/Kindergarten parking area, please don't park in the bus zone and drive slowly and carefully as this is an area many students/parents are walking through the parking lot.

If we all promise to proceed carefully, we will ensure the safety all of all of our children.  It's that easy!

 

More information and a parking map can be found on this page of our school website.

 

Sincerely,

Mr. T, Principal
