Back to School Safety Reminders!

The Erie Police Department wants to take a minute and remind kids, parents and motorists to be careful as the new school year begins. There are several things to keep in mind:

  • Parents of younger children – talk with your children and remind them they need to always cross at crosswalks and never run between parked cars into the street.

  • When using crosswalks, make sure the child crosses with the walk sign and/or when traffic is clear in both directions.

  • Motorists – drive cautiously and remember to drive at/or under the posted speed limit. The Erie Police Department will be strictly enforcing the speed limit, especially in school zones.

  • Motorists are also cautioned to pay attention to their surroundings. Do not text and drive – it is illegal. Distracted driving is dangerous, especially when combined with kids heading to/from school.

If careless driving or suspicious activity is observed, please contact the Erie Police Department through Boulder County Dispatch at (303) 441-4444.

The Town of Erie Parks & Recreation Department will again be supervising the elementary school crossing guard program this year. The Police Department will be working closely with the Parks & Recreation Department as well as the St. Vrain Valley School District. There is a need for crossing guards both before and after school. View the job posting and apply online at www.erieco.gov/jobs.

We hope everyone has a great start to the new school year and stays safe. As always, please contact the Erie Police Department if you have any questions or concerns.
