At Canyon View, student safety is our number one priority. To ensure that our students can independently navigate the trip to and from school safely, we have been collaborating with IPD to make sure we are doing all we can. Currently, they are actively investigating pedestrian and auto traffic patterns along our walk to school routes to identify the most impactful structural changes to nearby intersections and roadways. During this time, you will notice an increase in officer presence during high traffic times. Please take time to express your appreciation to the officers for their commitment to keeping students safe by upholding safe driving laws with all drivers.
As a school site, we will continue to educate students about pedestrian and bicycle safety. We are currently working with IPD to schedule student assemblies as well. Teachers will regularly reinforce with students the importance of being mindful of surroundings at all times.
Accidents can happen in the blink of an eye. We implore all drivers to take special precautions when driving near the school. While structural changes and traffic laws provide the guidelines for driving behavior, it is ultimately up to drivers to make safe choices behind the wheel. Make the choice every time you get in your car to slow down, pay attention, and protect everyone in our community, most especially our children.
Thank you for your continued support.
