Kids of all ages and grades will be starting school today, August 10, and drivers are encouraged to take extra precautions.
Glendora Unified is set to begin classes today followed by Charter Oak next Thursday.
GCN wants to remind residents that children will once again be in the streets and crosswalks in large numbers and to simply slow down, be alert and hopefully aware of the kids returning to school.
Glendora Superintendent Rob Voors sent a message districtwide to urge parents dropping off to watch for other children as well:
“Welcome back to a new school year that promises to continue building bright futures for all Glendora students. Our teachers, principals and support staff are prepared and ready to welcome you on the first day of school, this Wednesday, August 10th.
Also, for the safety of all students, be sure to observe all traffic laws when dropping off or picking up your student. As a reminder, please avoid cell phone use and remain attentive as all drivers and students adjust to drop off and pick up at each campus. The Glendora Police Department will be out in force, as usual, to ensure the safety of over 7,500 students who will be returning to school.
Again, welcome back to what promises to be a remarkable year of learning!”
Rob Voors, Ed.D
