eBike Safety Video: We are seeing some concerning behavior as it relates to our eBike riders.  It is very important that families and students understand the rules and the responsibilities that come along with riding an electric vehicle. Our School Resource Officers have made this video for you to watch and discuss with your students who ride eBikes.  We encourage you to watch the video with your students and to have serious conversations with them about eBike safety.
