  • Emergency Community Council Meeting

    January 14, 2016, 3:40 pm

    Attending: Diane Hammer, Jody Knecht, Brooke Pendleton, Hilary Hales, Ellen Cox, Shellie Ashby (PTA)

    • In the aftermath of the auto-pedestrian accident occurring on Monday, Jan. 11, where Layton High Student, Bailee DiBernardo was killed, concerns have been expressed to the Superintendent, Dr. Bryan Bowles, who asked me to address this issue with the community. Parents on Mrs. Hammer’s Remind List were also invited to attend. 4 other parents came to the meeting.
    • Community Council members and visitors suggested the following preventative measure which could be taken to avoid any future incidents. Mrs. Hammer, Mrs. Ashby, and other members of the community council will plan to attend the next city council meeting on Jan. 21. Mrs. Ashby will contact her council member to see if this is on the agenda.

    Layton City:

    We asked for recommendations for the city to consider. One of the dads living in the neighborhood, whose child walks to the Jr. High, works for a company who supplies safety equipment. He suggested the city consider the following:

    • Reflective flags at intersections ($6 each)
    • Cones ($25)
    • Ped-in-a-bag ($260) 20# base upright stand with a sign to be carried in and out of the intersection each day - perhaps firemen could do that.
    • 30”x30” flashing LED sign ($500)
    • A better street light (so dim, it is virtually useless right now)

    Whitesides Elementary

    We know that we can’t provide any hardware or physical properties to help with the safety of the children, but we can provide preventative safety education to help students be more aware of their responsibility to be alert to dangers. As a school, we will provide the following through a safety fair and direct instruction by teachers and by assemblies. United Parcel Service drivers will come and help with the safety fair, and we will work with our SRO to help provide resources to teachers, students and parents.

    Educating Students and Parents

    • Cross-walk safety education
    • Road safety education
    • Bicycle Safety education
    • Updating the SNAP plan and posting it prominently on the webpage
    • Contacting parents of children living west of Fort Lane to see how we can aid their students in getting to school safely.
    • Work with Central Davis Jr. High, Layton High, and Crestview Elementary to develop a safety plan for our students.
