The Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District and Livermore Police Department are reminding our community of the need to drive safely around and through school areas. Please keep these important tips in mind especially during the busy morning and afternoon hours around our neighborhood schools.

Safety Tips for Livermore Schools

With 14,000 students going to and from school daily, the LVJUSD and Livermore Police Department are reminding our community of the need to drive safely around and through school areas.

  • Parents should plan their child’s walking/riding route to school and discuss safety topics with their child surrounding the designated route.  Students should never jaywalk.  Bicycle riders must ride the same direction as other traffic.  Bicyclists must obey the rules of the road.
  • Students should not cross against red lights, whether walking or on bikes, scooters or skateboards.
  • Motorists approaching school zones should keep an eye out for children at all times.
  • Parents who drive their students to school are reminded to use the school’s drop off and pick up zones and become familiar with the established rules of the drop off/pick up zone.  Parents should never stop their vehicle in the middle of crosswalks or let students exit their vehicles in the middle of the street.
  • Parents should avoid loading or unloading children at locations across the street from the school. This forces students to unnecessarily cross busy streets — often midblock instead of at a crosswalk.
  • Drivers should always prepare to stop for a school bus when overhead yellow lights are flashing. Drive with caution when you see yellow hazard warning lights are flashing on a moving or stopped bus.
  • Drivers must stop for a school bus with its red overhead lights flashing, regardless of the direction from which the driver is approaching. Drivers must not proceed until the school bus resumes motion and the red lights stop flashing or until signaled by the school bus driver to proceed.

While we know that mornings and afternoons can be hectic times in getting to or from school, there is no situation that is so important that students and parents can’t take the time to do it safely and legally.

The school received reports from community members that some of our bicycle-riding students were seen carelessly weaving in traffic lanes and not obeying the rules of the road. Bicyclists share the road with all vehicles.

If your child rides their bicycle, scooter or skateboard to school, we would like to remind parents to discuss the safety rules with their children. Bicyclists ARE NOT pedestrians and are required to obey all traffic laws.  A person under 18 years of age shall not operate a bicycle, a non-motorized scooter, or a skateboard, nor shall they wear in-line or roller skates, nor ride upon a bicycle, a non-motorized scooter, or a skateboard as a passenger unless that person is wearing a properly fitted and fastened bicycle helmet. The helmet requirement also applies to a person who rides upon a bicycle while in a restraining seat attached to a bicycle or in a trailer towed by the bicycle.

Motorists should also keep in mind that while traveling in school zones, there are likely young, inexperienced bicyclists and pedestrians in the area. Please use extra caution while exiting driveways or making turning movements in areas around schools. Remember that the speed limit in school zones is 25 MPH when children are present (regardless of the posted speed limit).

Please read the attached bicycle safety tips and share them with your family and friends. The safety of our students and their families is important to us. 

Thank you for helping to make our community safe for everyone.

Pertussis Community Update
Pertussis, also known as whooping cough, is a contagious disease affecting the lungs. It is caused by a bacteria that can spread when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks near to other people. Pertussis can affect people of all ages but infants younger than 6 months are at greatest risk for severe disease leading to hospitalization and death. The highest rates of pertussis are seen in infants who are too young to have received all their pertussis vaccines, and in teenagers 14 to 17 years old whose pertussis vaccine protection has “worn off”.  more...
