Safety on our Streets

At a special assembly on Friday upcoming, our children will learn more about street safety and the “stop, look and wave” steps to pedestrian safety. The PTA has been working closely with Alexandria City and the Safe Routes to School program to enhance the safety in the streets surrounding our school which currently get a “D” rating as recorded by pedestrian accidents. This survey was circulated earlier in the school year and only 14 parents responded. Please take the time to complete the survey to help support important safety changes necessary to our streets.

At LCTA we often talk about the unique and special community we enjoy. Our beloved Nurse Jasmine Wood, Kenneth Wood, and their two wonderful boys are facing uncertainty in their lives.
