District 39 is proud to debut a new, biweekly feature called “Shine on 39” as a way to showcase some of the extremely talented students and staff in our learning community, Please enjoy this first edition as Elisha, a 6th grade student at Highcrest who was recently one of 10 students across the country to earn a TIME for Kids reporter position, sits down with Dr. Cremascoli.  

 

Safety when Traveling

With school back in session, traveling safely to and from school is very important. Whether traveling by car, bus, bike or foot, we remind everyone to be cautious and aware of their surroundings. Please review these safety practices with your children.

  • Obey traffic laws and signals – stop at all stop signs and crosswalks.
  • Be alert – watch for others around you and avoid using cell phones and earbuds/headphones while moving.
  • Adhere to bike safety – wear a helmet and watch for pedestrians, cars and other bikers.
  • Review village walking/biking routes – check out the Village-approved walking/biking paths for your school, which includes locations of crossing guards.
  • Travel with a friend - when possible, travel to and from school with a friend.
  • Have a plan – talk with your children about safety, what to do if approached by a stranger and where/how to get help, if needed.
