🚶 Traffic - Parent Ambassador
Do you know that we have 645 Earhart students getting picked up and dropped off at the same time every school day? There is always traffic congestion during drop-off and pick-up. White zones are being misused by some parents or caretakers to sometimes park and walk child in or wait while child walks in. Some parents are even parking or dropping off child in the staff parking spaces, and making drop-off and pick-up very unsafe. With the weather is soon getting colder, the traffic congestion will also get worse.
PTA has coordinated with school, City Traffic Engineer and City Police to coordinate an effort to assist in alleviating the traffic at Earhart School. We are looking for parent volunteers to run our Parent Ambassador Program to assist with the morning traffic jam at school. We will need two Parent Ambassadors around the curve in the parking lot and one by the K-yard to direct traffic. Thank you for being part of the Solution Team today!
