PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: For the safety of our children, we encourage residents to keep their sidewalks clear of snow and ice so that students have a safe path to walk to and from school and bus stops. It is also helpful if parents avoid parking too close to the bus stops, as this creates an unsafe environment for students, making it difficult for motorists to see students and safely navigate corners. Ideally, vehicles should remain 40 to 100 feet from the bus stop on either side of the street.
