Details and Information:
SAFETY REMINDER! Our first concern is always for the safety of the children. The area around the school is congested during morning drop-off and afternoon pick up despite the staggered schedules. Regardless of where you park your car, please be sure to use the crosswalks. Remind your children to look both ways before crossing any street, and to wait for drivers to stop before crossing any street. Students and parents must use the crosswalks when dropping off or picking up students. Please do not stop your car in the middle of the street to drop off your child. This is an extremely dangerous habit that puts children at risk. If you are driving, remember that Melrose has a 25 mph speed limit across the city. And most school zones have a limit of 20 mph. Please drive carefully.
