Trail Ridge - Traffic Incident

Dear Trail Ridge Families,

 

I want to inform you of an incident that occurred in our neighborhood.

 

After-school on Monday, March 30, a Trail Ridge student was hit by a car west of the school while walking home. Though the student sustained multiple injuries, she is currently recovering and is expecting to make a full recovery.

 

Please take this opportunity to speak with your student about proper pedestrian procedures, such as walking on sidewalks, crossing the street only at crosswalks and paying full attention to their surroundings when close to traffic.

 

As a reminder to drivers, with warmer weather, spring break and summer quickly approaching, more students will be active and outside in our communities.

 

I have asked our School Resource Officer to request additional patrols by the Longmont Police Department during school arrival and dismissal times to assist in alleviating any concerns.

 

Finally, I want to commend two eighth grade students, Natasha Read and Brianna Kallas, who witnessed the incident and acted quickly by calling 911. Their actions helped bring a quick and safe resolution to this situation.

 

We appreciate your support in helping make sure that all students are safe.

Mr. Cloke
