The Swanavon School Council is campaigning for a new crosswalk south of the school to help make student’s daily commute a little bit safer. There is a crosswalk to the north of the school near the main door’s, but Principal Corinne Kruse says as their student population grows, the need for a second crosswalk on the south side has become apparent.
“We’ve got more parents that are trying to drop their children off for school, we’ve got little pre-schoolers that attend, we’ve got kindergarten kids. So we’ve got a really large population of really small kids in our building, and not having the crosswalk makes it a little tricky.”
Kruse says having a designated crosswalk would also create more awareness and force drivers to pay closer attention. Swanavon School Council will meet tomorrow at 7 pm to discuss the issue further.
