School Board Stresses Back to School Safety and Respect
Prince George, B.C. – Prince George School Board Chair Tony Cable emphasized safety and respect in his opening remarks at last night’s first public meeting of the 2015-2016 school year.
“September is always a busy time in schools and that has again proven true this year,” he said. “We are pleased with the smooth start that our schools have experienced.”
Cable reminded everyone student safety to and from school and while at school is the paramount concern of the school district.
“This includes safety on the playgound, bicycle and pedestrian safety in and around school parking lots and safety for those students riding school buses.”
He also reminded all motorists to respect school buses’ flashing lights.
“When the school bus stops, you stop. When a crossing guard signals for drivers to stop, you stop,” said Cable, who also reminded drivers to be mindful “of recent decisions by Prince George City Council to restrict on-street parking on arterial streets where bike lanes are necessary.”
