PEI Home & School Federation News-September, 2022

Slow down and watch for students on the road.

Another school year begins Sept. 7. Students will be walking, cycling, riding on a bus or in family car to school. It is a strategic time to remind all motorists that with awareness and education, children can get to school and back home again safely.
