"Officer Friendly's" reminder: We need your help in keeping our kids safe near Oakwood Grade School. The drop off and pick up times have been a little scary with the following violations that have occurred in our school zone; *Passed a stopped school bus with lights flashing and the stop arm extended. * Driving down the one way streets the wrong way. * Aggressively cutting in front of other drivers who are waiting in line. * Blocking residential driveways. Please watch for out for the increased number of children walkers with the nice weather. Thank you for your help in keeping our students and community safe :)
