Parent Document Links:
NO DOGS ON SCHOOL PROPERTY - Even though we love your dogs, they are not allowed on the grounds when school is in session. For the protection of all, please do not bring your dogs during drop off, during the day, or during pick up. Even the best trained dogs, can be unpredictable around our students, so we ask respectfully that they stay away.
CROSSING GUARDS - Did you know that we have two crossing guards that help Coolidge students get to and from school safely each day? One is on Curtis and the other is on Pickford. These crossing guards were hired by the Livonia Police Department and report directly to the LPD. We often times hear from them that our parents are blocking the cross walks with their cars, which makes crossing unsafe. Please understand that all crosswalks should always stay open for walkers. Be aware of the crossing guards and the crosswalks. Listen to their directions. Drive carefully around our school.
Last year I sent a warning to families about parents speeding around our neighborhood during pick up and drop off. Some people didn't listen and the LPD was there to hand out some speeding tickets. Please listen to our crossing guards so that they don't have to get their bosses involved. We really don't want to be the school that needs a police officer to help our crossing guards keeps kids safe. Thank you.
