Hanover High School is an active learning community that provides broad academic and co-curricular programs. We engage students' minds, hearts and voices so that they become educated, caring and responsible adults.
All students are given the opportunity to use their
- minds to pursue excellence, academic challenge and personal success.
- hearts to respect and care for the emotional and physical well-being of themselves and others, and for the environment.
- voices to contribute to the democratic process and the common good.
Recently I have been receiving a significant number of calls from concerned citizens regarding traffic safety. Please speak with your students about using caution when crossing the streets around school, especially in the morning. Particular areas of concern include:
Student drop offs on Summer Street - please be vigilant for students walking through traffic. Please ask kids to use the sidewalk.
Drop offs in the ‘no parking’ and ‘accessible parking’ spots directly in front of the school - I recognize that this area is convenient for dropping off students but doing so creates one more traffic variable in front of the school. Please also be aware that we have students with disabilities who need to have access to this spot upon arrival.
Students crossing streets outside of the designated crosswalks - Please remind students that drivers in our morning traffic are very focused on arriving to work on time. They may not see a pedestrian crossing in an unusual spot. Please also be vigilant for pedestrians when you are one of the drivers!
The link below shows the areas in question, for all of the visual learners out there.
Thanks, as always, for your assistance. Have a wonderful weekend!!
