Rules to keep kids and families safe!

Please treat staff in neon vests and other families with kindness, respect, and patience.
SAFETY is our top priority!

  • Drive <10mph when within 3 blocks of Muir
  • Do not back up or do u-turns.
  • Pedestrians have the right of way at ALL intersections.
  • Come to a complete stop the whole time someone is crossing.
  • Always drive on the right side of the road; don’t cross traffic to park or pass.
  • Use your blinker to help pedestrians know

Pedestrians: always cross at intersections (not the middle of the block), ideally with an adult

If you can, walk or bike to school. It’s a fun way to get exercise, improve learning, reduce traffic and accidents, and connect with community!
