    Students safety is our top priority at Caraway Elementary! Working together, we can provide safe environments for our students. Here are a few reminders about how you can do your part to keep all of our students safe while you are on campus:

    • It is always a good idea for students to be focused on their surroundings and personal safety. We would like to take this opportunity to ask our parents to speak with their students and encourage them to take the necessary precautions to stay safe.
    • Always walk or bike with other students.
    • Be alert to what is happening and who is around you.
    • Never talk to a stranger or go near a stranger’s car.
    • Never accept rides from a stranger; If a stranger approaches you, scream and run. Find an adult you know and report what happened immediately.
    • During the morning drop off time, please be mindful about parking along Carlwood Drive. We have several students and families who bike to school. There have been a couple of “close calls” with car doors this week. Additionally, when cars park on this road it narrows the street for cars that are trying to drive through, which in turn narrows the available room for our student cyclists. We suggest that you park along one of the side streets such as Vallecito Drive or Deadoak Lane.
    • When leaving Caraway, please do not attempt to make a left turn out of the main driveway. This will keep our traffic moving smoothly and help the crossing guard safely get students across the street.

    Please do not hesitate to call us at 512-464-5500 if you have any suggestions or concerns. Thank you for your support and assistance.
