Claycordians, please be careful driving around our local schools!
We told you on Tuesday morning there was a crash in front of Clayton Valley High School on Alberta Way in Concord.
Here’s an update.
The following was sent out on Tuesday by David Linzey, the Executive Director at Clayton Valley Charter High School:
We all live very busy lives and get caught up in the morning rush to our destinations (school, work, etc.), but it is very important to keep safety paramount in our minds.
This morning, most unfortunately, one of our students was grazed by a car in the crosswalk in front of the school prior to the start of the day.
The student is fine, but this incident reminds us of the need for putting safety first in all we do. When students arrive to school early in the morning at this time of year it is quite dark out. We must not only be extra diligent in watching for students as we drive, but we must also instruct our students to be cautious and aware as they cross traffic.
Please take extra precautions when you approach all areas surrounding CVCHS. Remember to be careful when driving through the parking lots as well. We appreciate you discussing these reminders with your children whether they are driving yet or not, as we all must be defensive pedestrians.
