Traffic Duty Changes & Thank You!
I just wanted to send a huge THANK YOU to all of the Canyon parents/guardians who have already fulfilled traffic duty this year. It's up to all of us to keep our kids safe and I appreciate you taking the time and energy to assist with this. In an effort to decrease the time commitment we ask of our families, we have recently cut one shift from both the morning and afternoon slots. In addition, we have shortened all shifts by 10 minutes. This means it is more important than ever to fulfill your traffic duty!
Just a few reminders...
- Please do not have your child(ren) assist with traffic duty. I love that they want to help out too, but this is not permitted as it can put them in harms way and can also cause more of a distraction for you and/or drivers. School age children are permitted to be on the yard during your shift. Please arrange for childcare for younger siblings.
- If you are not able to fulfill your traffic duty, please make every effort to switch shifts with someone or notify your class traffic coordinator. If a replacement can not be found, please contact me directly.
- If you are on campus and notice that a shift isn’t covered, don’t be shy to grab a vest and to jump in and help out, even if it isn’t your week. It takes a village and we are all members of our Canyon village.
Thank you for doing your part to keep our kids safe!
