Please be aware of these important car, bike and walking safety expectations at Willett. CAR TRAFFIC​:

With the large number of students at Willett, your cooperation is essential for the orderly arrival and dismissal of our students.  In order to assist us, please follow the rules of the road 

  • The parking lot is for school staff only.  Parents should not be driving through or parking in the parking lot unless they have a handicapped placard and need to park in one of those two spots.

  • Do not park in red zones. The white zone is a 3 minute loading/unloading zone. Please do not park here.

  • Students and adults are not to walk through the parking lot.  Please use the crosswalks.

  • Do not honk or yell at children to enter into dangerous behavior, walk unattended through the parking lot or cross between stopped cars.

  • If you need to drop something off or wait for your child, please park on the street.

  • Obey all traffic laws, including no U turns in the middle of Sycamore Street and the 25 MPH speed limit.

  • PLEASE BE PATIENT AND COURTEOUS!

  • Set a positive, respectful example for all of our children.

BICYCLES

In order to insure student safety we request that parents review rules of the road with their child.  Parents of young students should ride the route with their child to insure their understanding of laws and safety procedures. Willett has the unique situation of being a convergence of students going to and from multiple schools, including UC Davis. Riders MUST be aware of what is happening around them at all times. We do not encourage bike riders prior to third grade without an adult. 

  • Bicycle helmets must be used!

  • All bikes are to be locked properly at the bike racks.

  • Bikes are not to be ridden on school sidewalks or playground.

  • All students are to obey directions given by the crossing guard or any adults on duty.

  • Students must walk their bike in crosswalks.

  • STUDENTS ON BIKES ARE TO GIVE PEDESTRIANS THE RIGHT OF WAY.

  • Riders are asked to WALK their bikes from the garbage can at Sycamore Park onto campus for the safety of all.


ROLLERBLADES, SCOOTERS AND SKATEBOARDS…
