We have had several incidents recently in which children have been knocked – or nearly knocked – by our doors. Hopefully we can minimize this if we follow these easy reminders:
1) Please reinforce our Collective rule for children to stay on the “safe side” of the stoop – that is, the side that has the buzzer at the top. Otherwise children can be in direct line with the big, heavy red door as it swings open. If you let your child run ahead of you, it is VERY important that you tell her/him to wait for you on the safe side.
2) Please always be careful when you open the white door to leave the Collective after you drop off your child. A child could be waiting right outside that door. Also, if you have just arrived and reached the top of the stairs, please make sure your child waits for you away from the door.
Thanks so much!
