We are observing International Walk to School Day this year on Wednesday, October 5th.

This event promotes awareness of the many benefits of walking to school such as improved health, less pollution and reduced traffic congestion. Walking to school is also a great way to energize the brain for the school day. We ask our parents and guardians driving on this day to use extra caution as we may have more families than usual walking or riding to school. 

We appreciate the Walk-n-Roll program of the City of San Jose for partnering with us for the 2022-2023 school year and helping us to promote fitness and safety in our community.

We ask that each parent/guardian committs to the safety of their student(s) and all students during drop off and pick up by: 

*following the traffic pattens in the parking lots. DO NOT drop students off  or pick them up where they would be walking or running through cars to reach you. 

*not stopping in the RED ZONES around the school. This poses a danger to all students trying to cross the streets, but also the cars and buses pulling out into traffic. 

*It is against the school safety zone to make a U-Turn in the middle of the street. This causes back ups on the streets in both directions.

*There is no LEFT TURN out of the front parking lot between 7:30 and 3:30 to allow for traffic to flow smoothly to the right and down Cypress Ave.

*Park in the neighborhood respectfully and walk to school.

*Cross only in cross walks.

*Finally, our neighbor's driveways cannot be blocked or their garbage cans moved on trash collection days.

Thank you for for doing your part to ensure that all students and families at Lynhaven are safe everyday!
