Grateful for police and speed reader presence in front of our school

Driving home the message

The Parent Advisory Council from Parkway Elementary School would like to take this opportunity to send a big thank you out to the Penticton RCMP and the speed reader volunteers in our city.

For the past month and a half, we have had the privilege of having police and speed reader presence in front of our school during peak student activity times (going and coming from school).

Although this has not completely eradicated the problem that we have with drivers going above the posted 30km/h speed limit, we have seen a significant decrease in the number of automobile drivers disobeying the law.

Our school is committed to finding a solution so that our children can pass safely from sidewalks to the school, and having these outstanding individuals in our vicinity in the interim has made us all breathe a little easier in hopes that no further incidents will befall our school.

We hope that the police and speed readers will continue to make ours and all of the other schools in the district a priority during peak student activity times. Once again, thank you all for your presence this past while at our school.
