Safety Alert

HURRIED DRIVERS ENDANGER PEDESTRIANS We are sad to say Gator parents have been observed speeding on the streets around school and in the parking lot. Some have endangered students and other pedestrians by not double checking before pulling out into roads and walkways. Others have been seen rolling through stop signs. Please take care when driving, especially where students are walking.
