Back to school safety tips and reminders

It's that time of year! School begins tomorrow for the Cypress Elementary and Anaheim Union High School Districts. Please remember there will be an increase in traffic congestion around schools.

Some things to remember:
- Don't use cell phones or drive distracted around School Zones.
- Don't park across the street and have your child cross. If there is no alternative to parking across the street from the school, accompany your child, using a crosswalk, as he or she crosses the street.
- Learn about and use the existing drop-off/pick-up system organized by the school.
- Discuss drop-off/pick-up rules with your children.
- Reduce school zone congestion by carpooling with neighbors or friends.
- Teach and encourage children to cross at the corner and use designated crosswalks.
- Follow instructions provided by school crossing guards.
- Always remember to use seat belts and appropriate child safety seats or booster seats when transporting children.

** Also please remember there are two new crosswalks around the City. Orange Avenue, near the Community Center, and Walker Street in front of Bank of America. There will be an increase in the number of pedestrians crossing at each of these new crosswalks.
