Hello 499 Families,

Keeping our children safe is our top priority here at PS/ IS 499.  We educate our students about road safety and the importance of following traffic rules in order to prevent accidents that can lead to serious injuries and in some cases unnecessary deaths.  Please talk to your children about using the crosswalks at each end of the building at all times.  It is very important students understand they are not allowed to cross the driveway or cross in between two school buses, because it is extremely dangerous.  Additionally, we are asking parents to model this safe behavior so that we can promote traffic safety at all times. 

Thank you for your support
