REMINDER: Students are reminded that they need to cross Kanesville either at the overpass or at the crosswalk – NOT in the middle of the block. We’ve had numerous reports of students almost being hit by cars as they cross mid-block on their way to Kirn – these reports included those walking, on bikes and on scooters. The SRO will ticket students for jaywalking if they are caught crossing in the middle of the block.
