Principal's Note - Safety Update
The Kennewick School District and The City of Kennewick have been working together to improve the safety along Bob Olson Parkway, especially where the roundabout intersects with 10th Street and Steptoe. The District and City have agreed to install some additional signage, some of which will flash to warn approaching vehicles that pedestrians are in the vicinity. All of the equipment and materials were ordered by the City in late November. The City will install the signage as soon as it arrives. We hope to have it in place by the first of February.

PLEASE don’t have balloons delivered to the school for your child !
Students aren’t allowed to take them to class as they are quite a distraction to learning, and they don’t fit in their lockers. Balloons are also not allowed on our buses, as they block visibility for our drivers. Thanks for your consideration, and enjoy the celebration at home!
