The mission of the Abington Public Schools is to provide all students with relevant, challenging educational experiences to prepare them to be engaged, responsible citizens and members of the global community.
Dear Abington Community, Parents/guardians need to be aware that unfavorable sidewalk conditions can occur during and after a snowstorm. Even if sidewalks have been cleaned, citizens clearing their driveways and walkways can cause sidewalks to be blocked. Melting and re-freezing of snow can also create an icing situation.
Parents/guardians should always be aware of the conditions of their child's walk to school or the bus stop and act accordingly. I would also like to take this opportunity to remind parent/guardians to talk to their children, as we have at school, about the dangers of thin ice on ponds and streams in the coming months and to take the appropriate precautions.
Thank you for your attention to these matters as we all work together to keep the children safe.
