It has been brought to my attention that some children are cutting through the back of the businesses neighboring Eshleman to come to school. I would like to be the “friendly neighbor” to these businesses and would encourage everyone to stick to the sidewalk when walking to and from school. I realize this shortcut may seem very appealing, but please know it creates other risks. Traffic in the parking lot and unknown patrons of the businesses are two that come to mind. Please talk to you child about always sticking to the sidewalk. Thank you.
