Driving Safely Around MHS - Message From your Principal

Driving Safely Around Our MHS

Hello MHS Families,

I hope this email finds you well. I wanted to take a moment to remind everyone about the importance of driving safely around our school. Ensuring the safety of our students and families is our top priority, and we kindly request your cooperation in this matter.

With the increased traffic during drop-off and pick-up times, it is crucial that we all follow the traffic rules and guidelines to maintain a safe environment. Here are a few important reminders:

1. Observe Speed Limits: Please adhere to the posted speed limits around the school premises. Slowing down will give you more time to react to any unexpected situations and will help prevent accidents.

2. Adhere to STOP signs: Please adhere to all STOP signs. We have many families walking to school and crossing the streets; therefore, stopping at all STOP signs is crucial. 

3. Use Crosswalks: Encourage your children to use designated crosswalks when crossing the street. Remind them to look both ways before crossing and to follow the instructions of the crossing guard.

4. Be Patient and Courteous: Traffic congestion can be frustrating, but it is important to remain patient and courteous to other drivers, pedestrians, and school staff. Also, yield to pedestrians at crosswalks.  Our gates open at 7:45 so come early to avoid traffic.  

5. Follow Drop-off and Pick-up Procedures: Follow the designated routes and instructions provided by the school to ensure a smooth flow of traffic.

7. Set a Good Example: As parents/guardians, you play a crucial role in teaching your children about road safety. Set a good example by following all traffic rules and demonstrating responsible driving behavior.

By working together, we can create a safe and secure environment for our students and families. Thank you for your cooperation and commitment to the safety of our school community.

Thank you, 

Mrs. Zavala
