We have our very own HERO at Oakwood Elementary. We are very proud of Jacob, a sixth grader and member of the Safety Patrol, for his alertness and quick actions.
Last week after school, Jacob was at his post at the crosswalk in front of the building. As he was guiding students across the parking lot, he noticed a vehicle that continued to move into the crosswalk, ignoring Jacob’s waving orange flag. Jacob reacted quickly and pulled a small student out of the car’s path avoiding serious injury or accident.
The parent was texting and not paying attention.
As we celebrate Jacob’s quick responses in performing his duty, please be one hundred percent aware of surroundings, students, and other vehicles while in the school parking lot.
