IMPORTANT INFO for all Students: 
When coming and going to and from school all of us need to pay close attention to our surroundings. Cars are whizzing by on Delaware and Poplar, some stopping at crosswalks while some drivers do not. You are old enough and intelligent to realize the dangers of NOT paying attention. When you are on the sidewalks, streets, parking lots, and walkways, ALWAYS look  both ways and around for your safety and potential dangers. Please be aware and stay safe.
