Letter: Richmond school board asks drivers to keep schoolkids safe

Dear Editor,

 On behalf of the Richmond Board of Education, I am pleased to welcome our students and families to a new and exciting school year. To ensure that our children get safely to their schools, we thank Richmond motorists for taking special care while driving through school zones and around playgrounds.

 With the start of the school year, we remind Richmond motorists that school speed zones are in effect on all school days from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with a maximum speed limit of 30 km/h.

Be ready to stop for children waiting to cross the road and disembarking from vehicles. If we all do our part, our children will arrive at school safely.

Ken Hamaguchi

Chairperson, Richmond Board of Education
