Exceptions must have the approval of the Superintendent. How it affects student travel modes: The School Travel Policy ensures that all students travel to and from school on buses during all field and other District-sponsored trips.

X No, there are separate driveways for family vehicles and school buses. Do all students use the same entrance to the school building in the morning? Yes, all students enter the building at the same location. X No, students can use different entrances.

Walkers and/or car riders enter in a different entrance. Are all students released at the same time during dismissal? Yes, all students are released at the same time. X No, we use a staggered release process (walkers are released first, bus riders second, etc.).

8 If yes, in two sentences or less, describe how school staff are involved in school arrival and dismissal: Before school, school staff members monitor entrances and students before they are permitted to enter the building. At dismissal, school staff members monitor exits and ensure children safety when heading to their mode of transportation. Staff members walk students to buses, cars and cross walks. Are there any adult crossing guards located along student walking routes? X Yes, we have at least one adult crossing guard that helps students on their walking routes.

9 Safety Issues and Concerns Parent surveys, teacher meetings and information gathered during community meetings provided multiple safety issues and concerns. Wellington Community Members and staff members from Westwood Elementary School are concerned with the fact that students do not properly use cross walks when traveling to and from school. Students have also been observed to run out into traffic and to not be aware of their surroundings. The parents reported that walking and biking to school is not promoted or encouraged by the school district. The health benefits are not communicated to students and/or families. Westwood Elementary is also located down the street from Wellington High School and many people commented on the high speed of drivers from the high school while both schools are dismissing for the day. This location also leads to large amounts of traffic near both schools during arrival and dismissal. Relevant traffic crashes The following information is a summary of the findings from the crash data reports recorded within 2 miles of the school sites for the previous 3 years for which data is available. This information was provided by the Village of Wellington Police Department. There were 7 total crashes within the STP study area. The crashes resulted in 7 injuries and 0 fatalities.
