Message from Mr. Ettore & Chief Walsh

Chief Walsh from the MBPD has asked that I send home a reminder to all families about the requirement for ALL students to wear a helmet when riding their bikes.  Over the past two days, the patrol officers have seen many students riding their bikes without a helmet, which is actually against the law.  Chief Walsh has instructed his patrol officers to start confiscating bikes from children who are not wearing helmets in an effort to have everyone take this safety regulation seriously.
 
Knowing that there is nothing more important than the safety of our children, I am counting on all of you to help reinforce this expectation with the bike riders in your house.
