Carpool Safety Reminders

Click here to view the full list of carpool reminders and city/state laws.

Good reminders for drivers:

  • Slow down in all school zones! Our school zones operate before school from 7:00-8:00 am and after school from 2:30-3:15 pm. The speed limit in all active school zones is always 20 MPH. 
  • Do not use your cell phone in any Carpool Line or while driving. It's illegal!
  • Watch out for the crosswalks. Always stop when the crossing guard is in the street holding up the Stop sign. Do not enter the street until the crossing guard has returned to the sidewalk.
  • Allow extra time to arrive early! The building opens to students at 7:30 am.

Have patience and be kind to our fellow Hightower families!
