3rd grade Students from Highview provide pedestrians with safety tips
& Edgemont 7th grader encourages pedestrians to wear reflectors, use flashlights when walking at night
Highview School's librarian and Intervention Lab teacher Mr. Mike McHale, gathered some third-grade students from the Advanced Learning Program (ALP) classroom, and put together the following PSA regarding safety. Wear reflectors. Carry flashlights. Try to wear bright (not dark) clothing. If motorists can't see you walking you could be hit by a car. Every year pedestrians die because motorists can't see them walking in the dark. The Highview students also provide pedestrians with a number of other important safety tips that could help keep pedestrians safe. Highview School is part of the Greenburgh Central school district.
THANK YOU students for helping our community be safe. If everyone follows the recommendations in the PSA there would be fewer pedestrian accidents.
Free reflectors can be picked up at the lobby of the Greenburgh Town Hall. The Greenburgh police also give out reflectors to pedestrians.
We continue to try to involve students and hope they will continue to help us make our town a better and safer place to live.
