May – National Youth Traffic Safety Month
1. You make choices every day – what to wear, what to eat, what TV show to watch, what songs to listen to on the radio. So, why not make the choice every day to be safe behind the wheel, to protect your safety and the safety of others? What would happen if you chose to speed, to talk or text on your cell phone, chose not to buckle your seat belt, or to drink and drive? Who would be left behind? Whose lives would you impact by making choices that could have devastating consequences? When behind the wheel, you’re in control of a lethal weapon, so make sure you always focus on the task at hand – driving safely. May is National Youth Traffic Safety Month – remember, buckling your seat belt takes like two seconds and that call or text can totally wait! And, let’s not forget the dangers of speeding, and drinking and driving. To help you make wise choices behind the wheel, visit the Young Driver section at http://www.justdrivepa.com/.

2. Vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among 16-24 year olds. Some key contributors to crashes involving teen drivers in Pennsylvania include driver inexperience, driver distractions, driving too fast for conditions and improper or careless turning. PennDOT offers numerous resources for young drivers, as well as parents and guardians, to help keep everyone safe on the road during this time. Try putting your phone in the back seat so that you aren’t tempted to text or call while driving, and be aware of the speeds you’re driving at. It only takes a moment for a crash to occur, so make sure to remain alert at all times. For more tips visit the Young Driver section on JustDrivePA.com.

It’s also National Bike Month – check out PennDOT’s series of bicycle and pedestrian safety videos for viewers of all ages at www.youtube.com/pennsylvaniadot.

Due to increased congestion in the area, Cresson Borough will be strictly enforcing the No Parking restrictions along 4th street adjacent to the stadium both during athletic events and during the school day.
We remind our students, community members and fans that to avoid the fines associated with illegal parking along 4th Street please park elsewhere during school hours and at after-school events utilizing the stadium and auditorium.

My School Account
Monitor your children’s lunchtime purchases, track what your children have been eating for the past 30 days, make deposits directly into their meal accounts, and have an email reminder sent to you when an account balance gets low. Student debit account deposits can be made through ACH payments. Each child’s account will be updated nightly so that account balance information and payments will be current as of the following day.

Jobulator for Subs using Aesop
This new product is a computer widget that was designed to notify substitutes of available positions in Aesop right from their desktop. This piece of software alleviates the need to log in to or call Aesop multiple times a day to search for available positions. To learn more about how Jobulator works, please visit www.jobulator.com.
