Dear Parents,

This week, as we came back from Spring Break, a student was almost hit by a car.  There were cars illegally parked in the red zones on both sides of the crosswalk, blocking drivers’ views of students crossing in the Bunker Hill crosswalk.  The red and yellow zones are marked for a reason.  Please do not park in these areas.  We have asked the Sheriff’s Department to help us patrol around our school, for the safety of all of our students.  Please help us out.  If there is a parent who would be willing to cross children at Bunker Hill, please let us know.  We truly could use the help.  Thank you for driving carefully around our school and parking in appropriate areas, not in our yellow or red zones.  Safety First.
