Dear Farnsworth Parents, Families and Community Members,

We have some winter safety concerns that we’d like to go over with you.

It has come to our attention that parents are walking children through the staff parking lot before and after school, as well as allowing them to slide on the snow hill that has gathered in the corner of the lot. This is a great safety concern as teachers are entering and exiting the lot at those times. Please, do not walk your children through the teacher parking lot. We understand that it is some extra walking to go around the fence, and we are working with facilities to find a place they can install a safe gate to shorten that walk, but until then, walking children though that lot creates a great safety hazard to the children.

We really need your cooperation and understanding to ensure the safety of our children. We can only improve this situation by working together.

Please remember, my door is always open.

Mrs. Barbara E. OKen
Principal, Farnsworth School
