Thank you everyone for your patience in the traffic circle. Afternoon traffic seems to have found its rhythm! Tips:
- We ask that you do not make a U-turn at the bottom of the traffic circle. Orange cones were in place the first two weeks of school as a reminder. Attempting a U-turn prevents cars from clearing the intersection and causes backups down Eucalyptus and Floribunda.
- Please be aware of our special needs students that require additional time to load into their cars.
- Those of you who requested additional placards should see them come home with your child this week.
Thank you for your attention. Please feel free to direct any questions to your NPG Traffic Chair, Gia Corsetti, at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Welcoming Families Co-Chairs would like to say a big thank you to the parents that acted as buddy families to incoming North families.

A huge thank you to our 2nd-5th Grades Welcome Back Coffee Committee! Amy J, Liat B, Jennifer F, Jennifer S, Laura H, Tracy E, Beth G, Erin L, Elsbeth I, Simona I, and Jana A. We could not have done it without your early morning energy and your fresh door to door deliveries!

Those who wish to march in the parade must report by 9:30 a.m. to the parking lot at Broadway and Chula Vista. This family friendly event offers free entertainment and art projects for children. There is no charge to participate and every participant receives a souvenir ribbon.
This year, for the first time, public and private schools for grades K through 12 throughout San Mateo County are invited to compete in a “Best School Float” contest. The winning school will receive $500 from the Burlingame Merchants Association. Judges also will select the Best Pet Trick; Most Unusual Pet; Best Dressed Pet; and Most Original Float, Group or Wagon (non-school category). Judging takes place immediately after the parade at Broadway and Paloma. Complete rules and more information are available at www.burlingamepetparade.com.
