Safety Reminder:  It is important for us all to work together to keep our children safe.  Most recently we have noticed many cars driving very fast up the driveway from Merrick Avenue to Hewlett Avenue.  This is creating an unsafe environment for the students who are entering the building as well as those who are walking to school.  We are asking for everyone to please drive slowly, pay careful attention to your surroundings and be sure to STOP at the signs posted.  Thank you for your cooperation in keeping all students, staff and families safe!
