Back to School Safety Reminders from the Chief of Police


The beginning of a new school year is a great time to review safety for cyclists, pedestrians and motorists. 

Please remind children who bike to school of the following:

  • Use sidewalks and be courteous when passing pedestrians. Walk bikes in business districts.
  • Always wear helmets.
  • Be aware of oncoming traffic when approaching intersections, and use marked crosswalks, when possible.

 For people driving in the Village, especially around school zones:

  • Travel at safe and slow speeds, as posted.
  • Remain alert for children running onto the roadway.
  • Do not use your mobile phone while driving.

Thank you for doing your part to keep our roads and sidewalks safe for our community.
