    Parents/Guardians,

    On September 13, 2017, 40th Street will be closed and detoured for several weeks.  The detour will bring additional traffic through the neighborhoods near the school.  The school as well as the community council is concerned about ensuring your children who walk to school will make it safely to school each day with the increased traffic volume in our neighborhoods around the school. 

    During this time South Ogden Police will have more of a presence in the area to help, but we as parents will need to increase our vigilance to keep our children safe.  Listed below are a few suggestions that you may consider.

    • Talk with your children about traffic safety and encourage them to be aware of their surroundings on their way to and from school.
    • Walk with your kids to and from school.
    • Work out walking groups with other parents help cover each day of the school week.  Which may include utilizing apps like Walking School Bus.
    • Allow additional time to get to school so they are not rushing through intersections.
