Dear Glenknoll Families:
Now that school is back in session, I would like to urge you to be very careful when driving near the school and in our parking lots. Please follow all traffic laws and speed limits. Please yield to all pedestrians. Be aware of the "No Left Turn" signs. Do not park in marked “no parking/no loading” zones.
We have requested increased traffic patrols. We know you all want our children to be safe (and to avoid a costly traffic infraction)!
