An increasing number of parents are using the Romaine Road entrance for pick up and drop off. Care is needed.With the growing school roll, pick up and drop off of students is becoming more difficult and requires patience and care from drivers. As a result of the increased congestion, more parents are now dropping their children off and picking them up from Romaine Road. The problem is that Romaine Road has not been built to accommodate this kind of traffic.
A number of children walk to school or home unaccompanied via Romaine Road and they are at risk as cars turn around after pick up or drop off. Please take the utmost care and always watch out for children who might be quite small and hard to see. A little consideration goes a long way to make the world safe for all.
