School Safety: Improving Drop Off/Pick Up of Students 


We are being faced with a serious problem that is putting our children in danger around our school.Schools are often just limited to send a letter home with the children politely asking parents not to park in designated places, but unfortunately not enough take notice and continue to park illegally outside schools. These practices are endangering pedestrians, other drivers and our children going to and from school.We understand that parking can be difficult and that there are circumstances that arise when rules are needed to bend slightly. We do know, however, these are exceptional circumstances and rules are created for a reason, a very important reason, the safety of our children.We need to join forces to make those who can change things listen to us. We need to join together to be change agents and make our school as safe as possible. We need solutions and compromise and even possible changes to help parents and ease our systems in a safe and legal way.How can we better enforce these rules when traveling to and from school?DO cross only at crosswalks and corners
DO find a legal parking space and walk in with your child
DO stay with your car at all times in the drop‐off/pick‐up areaDO NOT let children cross in the middle of a block
DO NOT make U‐turns near a school
DO NOT park in the drop‐off/pick‐up areaThis topic is “School Safety: Improving Drop Off/Pick Up of Students”. Every morning parents drop off their children at school, and every morning, we see unsafe practices. Children, staff members, and drivers are put in potentially dangerous situations. At the end of each day, these events are repeated. These traffic problems cause daily concerns for both parents and staff.In an effort to keep our students safe, we need you to come be a part of the solution.We invite you to come solution minded and join us for a task force to better our systems to ensure safety for all and ease of drop off and pick up.Please consider joining us on Monday 4/23 or Tuesday 4/24 as we build a think tank of solution-minded citizens to better our practices.If you are able, you are invited to choose from the following times:4/23 3:00 – 4:00 in the Conference Room
4/24 7:30 – 8:30 in the Library
4/24 11:00 – 12:00 in the Conference Room

We look forward to working with you soon.

What is PBIS?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PBIS stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. It places emphasis on school-wide systems of support that include proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors in order to create and maintain a positive school environment. All areas of the school including the classroom and areas common to all students (such as hallways, restrooms, cafeteria, etc.) have expectations appropriate to that area. Attention is focused on keeping those systems of support in place and reminding students of them in order to help improve lifestyle results for all children. School-wide expectations are posted throughout the school.

Adults introduce the desired behavior, model it, and then reinforce the positive social behavior with all students at the school. Teaching behavior expectations and rewarding students with a “Purple Ticket” is a more positive approach than waiting for misbehavior to occur and then responding. The main purpose of PBIS is to provide a framework in which appropriate behaviors are the school norm, thus creating a positive climate for all who belong.
