Thank you to Salt Lake County for assisting the School Community Council and PTA members in establishing a safer street crossing for our students. The crosswalk located mid-street on 8420 S in front of the school has been eliminated. Students were stepping out from between cars to cross the street at this crosswalk. The crossing was also extremely hazardous during the winter since snow could not be cleared effectively with cars parked near the crosswalk. ALL STUDENTS WILL NOW CROSS AT THE CORNER OF 8420 S AND HILL HAVEN with the assistance of the crossing guard provided by Salt Lake County. PTA and SCC members will be at the old crosswalk for the first few days of school to guide students to the correct crossing.
