"Parents, we ask that you please talk with your student about pedestrian safety when walking or riding a bike to and from school," Leftakis said in a message delivered to Windermere families. "Please remind them to always use sidewalks when available, cross the road at marked crosswalks and walk in groups when possible.

"Student safety is our top priority, and we will continue to reinforce safety procedures here at school," he said.
