Our Valet Safety program is now in full swing! By now, you may have noticed a difference in the drop-off procedure at Beckford. Too many children were being placed in danger by the erratic parking and double parking of parents in the morning during drop-off time. In conjunction with the Beckford PTA, Principal Brower has instituted the Valet Safety Program.
Parent volunteers have been essential in making this program successful. We are still in need of more parents volunteers to sign up for a morning shift at either the drop-off gate on Beckford, the side walk-in only gate on Vanalden, the staff parking lot, and the front of the school in the bus zone.
Here's how the program works:
Drive up the coned lane towards the gate
...and a valet will greet your car.
The Parent Valet will then open the door for your child; Valets will also be at the gate to watch the children enter the school yard.
Traffic will still be able to flow both up and down the street while the parking valets are assisting the children out of cars.
Thanks to the Parking Enforcement crew for helping our Volunteer Parent Valets during their first week of Valet Duty!
I know, I know.... not everyone was happy to see them. There were more than a few grumblings about a few tickets issued that day, but everyone is worried about the kids, and in the end this is what this program is all about, insuring that all our children get to their classrooms SAFELY.
