During the June 6th Building Renovation Meeting we heard very consistent feedback from our neighbors and community QAE parents have NOT always been kind, safe or fair to our children, ourselves and our neighbors. We were reminded of some basic SAFETY and RESPECT procedures that you should remember when dropping off and picking up your children at school. Please help us model good safety behaviors for our children and be good neighbors.
1) Crossing Boston St at the intersection of Bigelow. There is a signed cross walk at Boston and 4th Ave N to use for our safety and our children. Our neighbors have witnessed a number of situations where distracted or hurried drivers do not pay attention when driving through this area and it is further challenged by the slope of the street giving drivers some blind spots. They reminded us that we should all be careful and safe when crossing streets.
2) Crossing the any street mid-block. Please don't play frogger across the busy street.
3) Parking - please respect our neighbors driveways, fire hydrants, crosswalks and stop signs. The below is the Seattle Department of Transportations Parking Regulations in regards to How Close Can you Park? Parking illegally, even for a couple of minutes, is unfair and unsafe to those that are sharing the roads.
4) Drop Off - Please pull all the way to the front of the drop off/pick up zone to allow space for other cars (even when it's rainy).
Thank you to all parents for helping live and model our pillar that "We are concerned, confident and compassionate citizens of the world"
