New Crosswalk Warning Lights at Carlyon and Henderson

What exactly is an RRFB? RRFB stands for Rectangular Rapid Flash Beacons, recently installed at Henderson and Carlyon, where many of our students travel on the way to and from school. These beacons have been successful at slowing and alerting drivers that pedestrians want to cross. Here is how to safely use the new RRFBs and the crosswalk:

  • Push the button to activate the flashing lights. This does not guarantee cars will stop, only that the crosswalk will draw extra attention for drivers. This is only the first step to a safe crossing.
  • Look left, right, and left again before crossing.
  • Make sure drivers see you before crossing in front of them. Make eye contact with the driver.
  • If you are on a bike, dismount and walk your bike across the crosswalk.

Although we have crossing guards to help students cross safely before and after school, it is still important to emphasize these skills repeatedly with students. Thank you for your help ensuring our students have a safe journey to school!

Budget - Seeking Your Input!

The Olympia School District is beginning to develop its 2015-16 school year budget.  If you would like to offer input into how the district should prioritize spending for the following year, we invite you to take our budget survey.  

Safe Schools Alert

Safety is our top priority.  SafeSchools Alert is a reporting system that allows students, staff, and parents to submit concerns to our administration in four different ways; phone, text, email or via the web.  Anyone may easily report on bullying, harassment, alcohol/other drugs, vandalism or safety concerns through the SafeSchools Alert process.  Tips may be submitted anonymously.

If you have questions, contact your school principal or the District Compliance Officer, Jeff Carpenter at (360) 596-8544.
