Menlo Park is fully “back-to-school” with MPCSD opening today
Three fourth grade girls at Laurel were all smiles, and Isola the crossing guard was at her place once again at the corner of Oak and Oak Knoll.
A new touch at that intersection are chalk board signs made by neighborhood mom Courtney Gillette, whose twins are in 5th grade at Oak Knoll. Like other residents in the area, she’s noticed that more and more motorists are are not stopping at that intersection.
“I thought a few gentle reminders might be helpful, particularly if I keep the messages positive,” she said. “I’m hoping it will lead to people feeling a better sense of community and the satisfaction of being a good neighbor.”
We add: Hopefully by obeying the law everyone stays safe.
