To: Anne E. Moncure Elementary School Families
From: Master Deputy M. Todd, Anne E. Moncure Elementary SPO
Subj: SPO Greetings / Safe Driving Message
Greetings MES Family, I am Master Deputy Michael W. Todd. I have been a deputy with the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office since 2004, serving five of those years as a DARE Instructor and SRO in our county schools. Now I have the privilege of being assigned as the School Protection Officer here at Moncure Elementary School. I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome all of the first year Bears and their families to our new “house”!! AND for those returning MES Bears, “Welcome Back!”
The Stafford County Sheriff's Office and Stafford County Public Schools would like to remind motorists visiting our new school that the speed limit on Juggins Road and in MES School Zones is 25 mph. It is also important to remember that when driving on Juggins Road, as with most residential / subdivision roads in Stafford County, the posted speed limit remains 25 mph. As always, seat belts are mandatory while the vehicle is in motion!1
On school days, when these zones are active, the School Speed Zone Flashing Lights will be on and actively enforced. For us here at MES, even with the temporary absence of our Speed Zone Flashing Lights, these “zones” are present on Juggins Road during the following times: in the morning from 8:25 am - 9:25 am and in the afternoon from 3:15 pm - 4:25 pm every day that schools’ in session.
In our school parking lots (to include the bus ramp) the speed limit is always 15 mph. It is also requested that when in the car rider lane for drop off or pickup, that your student exit the vehicle on the passenger side of your vehicle. There is NO passing in the Car Rider Zone!! When necessary, if a student must exit from the driver’s side of the vehicle, no passing will be permitted unless being signaled by school staff or the SPO to do so.
MES bus ramp times are in the morning from 8:15 am – 9:30 am and in the afternoon from 3:00 – 4:30 pm. These times are for BUS TRAFFIC ONLY. As a reminder, due to safety and security concerns, NO vehicles (private or commercial) are permitted on bus ramp at any time when a SCPS school bus and / or after school program vehicles are present.
On behalf of the MES Administrators, Faculty, Staff and the BEST students in Stafford County, as we Engage and Empower all Learners to Thrive while having a fun and safe year!!
If there are any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me here at Moncure Elementary, PROUD Home of the Bears.
