IMPORTANT INFORMATION FROM
In order to continually help you proceed swiftly and safety on your morning travels after you drop your child/children off at school, here's a quick reminder when you approach me at the intersection of Carondelet @ Monroe St.
1. If I am in the Middle of Monroe St. with traffic stopped, you DO NOT have to stop at the Stop Sign. This is why I am in the street.
2. You still MUST use your blinker, as to Louisiana Law, indicating which direction you would like to turn. Not only is it the law, but it allows me to tell the difference between who is turning and who is crossing over Monroe St. continuing southbound on Carondelet St.
3. Please be aware that I may stop traffic ALL DIRECTIONS for students that walk or ride a bike to school. Student safety is one of my many many focus points.
4. Please remember that all occupants in your vehicle must wear a seat belt and School Zones are "Hands Free Zones". At no time can you have your cell phone in your hands while in a School Zone.
5. Please feel free to call me at the school if you have any questions and/or concerns. I'll be happy to assist any of you as much as I can.
6. It is extremely important that you are NOT on your cell phone in school zones. This means, You cannot talk, text and/or look or post anything onto Social Media while in a "Hands Free Zone" in a School Zone during School Zone hours as per Louisiana Law. Citations may be issued for violating the "Hands Free Zone" Law. It is for the safety of children as well as pedestrians.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
