Parents Needed to Help Children Walk to School

October 7, 2002
Montgomery County Public Schools are asking for parent volunteers to help tomorrow, Tuesday, October 8, by walking their children to school, waiting at bus stops, and replacing safety patrols at street corners and walkways.

Student safety patrols will be prohibited from taking their assigned posts at street corners and walkways and, instead, parent volunteers are being requested to act in their place. Parents are encouraged to help children safely walk their children to and from school and bus stops. The Montgomery County Council of PTAs is mobilizing parent volunteers at individual schools.

In addition to a county and state police presence throughout the county tomorrow morning, some 117 Montgomery County police and fire cadets also will be assigned to be available in the communities to assist students traveling to school.
