Today, three students were involved in a traffic collision, which did result in emergency services responding. We know that it may have been alarming for you or your student to see the activity on our campus this morning, and we wanted to ensure you had accurate information to address any questions you or your student may have.

As we enter into this last part of the school year, please take this opportunity to have a discussion with your student about safe behavior within driving zones, whether they are a driver, passenger or walking along roadways. We all play a critical role in keeping ourselves and each other safe. 

Thank you for being a part of our Celtic family,
