SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS

RE: the hazardous crosswalk at Moorpark & Irvine. Community voices were heard. The city has moved this request to the top of their list. We have been informed the project will be completed within 6 months with a targeted completion date before school resumes in August of this year. Thanks to all for your action on this important issue.

RE: School campus. As noted in Ms Gamba’s weekly message, the school has taken immediate steps to improve the school's front door and campus security. Our newly formed School Safety Committee has organized to address needs in an ongoing manner.
