SAFETY - TOC
Safe walking routes have been established and maps are available identifying the location of crosswalks and sidewalks. Parents have the responsibility to practice walking the safe route with their children. Slow down to 20 MPH or less when driving near the school. Park, load and unload students in designated areas only. See Hillcrest Traffic Safety Map on page 16. Skates, skateboards, scooters, roller blades or roller shoes are discouraged at school. Students should not bring CD players, sports equipment, toys, electronic games, cards or other potential nuisance items to school without teacher authorization. It is against Logan City ordinances for a student to throw snowballs, sticks, rocks, or any other"projectiles". Such behavior may result in a student being suspended from school. (See Safe Schools Policy) Please report lost or stolen bikes directly to the police. A student is allowed to ride a bicycle to school when:
A parent has given permission.
All riding safety and courtesy rules are known and willingly followed by the rider, (e.g., not riding double).
The bicycle is parked and locked in the bike racks.
The bicycle is not ridden on school grounds during, just before, and just after school.
The rider wears a helmet. Please be sure to label your child's helmet.
Sports or games, that involve excessive physical contact, are not allowed (e.g., tackle football, rugby,"King of Bunkers Hill", etc.).
Students should not climb trees, rails, basketball standards, the school building or other structures not intended for climbing. Students are not automatically covered by accident insurance while attending school. It is the responsibility of parents to provide accident insurance for their children. Information about obtaining student insurance is sent home with students at the first of the year and is also available at the office.
