SCUSD students returned to their schools last week to find their campuses greener, healthier and safer thanks to Sacramento voters who passed Measures Q and R in 2012.
Over the summer, SCUSD facilities crews worked hard to replace roofs and windows, upgrade plumbing, resurface playgrounds, install outdoor learning labs and modernize heating and air conditioning systems.
Bond funding from Measures Q and R made the improvements possible.
School is back in session, and with it the return of heavy traffic around SCUSD campuses during drop-off and pick-up times. This congestion can lead to accidents if drivers, cyclists and pedestrians ignore traffic laws.
The speed limit around schools is 25 miles per hour. Double-parking, parking along red curbs, parking in driveways and parking in crosswalks is illegal and can result in a ticket.
Representatives of more than 70 colleges and universities will be on hand to provide information and answer questions about financial aid, entrance requirements and the application process. All SCUSD students and families are welcome to attend this free event.
