Road Safety

As you know, on January 3, 2013 five students (Jeffrey Sinclair, Justyn Alexander; Michael Brooks; Elisha Brown; and Urek Bradshaw) were involved in a horrific car accident immediately after school.  Praise God that they all survived! All of the students have since returned to school, except Jeffrey, who remains at University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, in serious condition.

At this time, the Sinclair family has not made any special requests. Guidance is collecting get well cards for Jeffrey that will be delivered at an appropriate time.

A discussion was held on ways to keep student drivers, their passengers, and the community safe. The following suggestions were discussed:

Request a meeting with Howard County Police                                                                          Installing speed bumps                                                                                                                Posting speed limits in the parking lots                                                                                     Using cones to force drivers to exit at the traffic light or a right turn only when exiting the student parking lot
