A BIG thank you to our principal/ crossing guard for keeping our children safe. Hopefully the vehicle that tore through the parking lot after school today with no regard to other people or respect for our children, will be found and brought to justice! Thank you again for being there for our kids and thank you to the parent that got the cars license plate number!
