交通安全注意事项 Safety Reminder
上周有老师在学校差点被快速行驶的车辆撞倒. 这里提醒大家, 在校园里一定要低速行驶, 注意行人,保证大家的安全.
This is a reminder that we should drive very carefully on school campus. Last week a pedestrian almost got hit by a fast moving car on campus. Please always keep in mind that safety is our top priority in school. Thanks.
