District Supports Operation Safe Stop

On Tuesday, May 1, 2018, the Timberlane Regional School District will cooperate with local, county and state law enforcement officials in the Operation Safe Stop program designed to (1) educate the public on laws about and the dangers of illegally passing stopped school buses with red lights flashing and stop arm extended; and (2) increase police presence targeting violators of this law. 

We need your help to deliver a message to students, parents and people you know explaining it is life threatening to children when a motorist passes a school bus, from either direction, when the FLASHING RED LIGHTS are ON!. 

A 2017 survey by the National Association of State Directors of Pupil Transportation Services with responses from 29 states shows a 104,000-school bus driver recorded a one-day snapshot showing 77,972 vehicles passing their buses illegally.  These sample results alone show for a 180-day school year over 14 million violations by private motorists. 

Our  bus drivers report this takes place every day in our community.  We cannot allow this to continue to happen.  That is why our school district has chosen to support Operation Safe Stop’s goal of educating as many individuals as possible to protect the lives of our students.

Thanks for taking time to read this and becoming involved in Operation Safe Stop!

TRSD Letter about Florida Tragedy

Feb 15, 2018

To the Timberlane School Community:

In light of the terrible events that occurred in Florida yesterday, our thoughts and prayers are with the Parkland community, parents, students, and staff.  The violence that this community experienced is reprehensible and tragic, and no school system should endure this type of peril.  We stand with the Parkland School District and offer support as they deal with the traumatic aftermath of this heartbreaking event.

We want to assure you that we continue to take all safety precautions to safeguard our schools.  Our administrators and staff are quick to respond to any suspicions or threats. Students speak up if they become concerned with what they hear or see on social media.  Our local Police Department is very responsive and supportive of the work we do in schools.

To our Parents:

It is unfortunate that you are put in the position to have to answer your children’s questions about these tragic events.   This can be a difficult time for children.  Please assure them that they are safe, and all the adults are there to protect them.  We have posted more resources on how to talk to your children about these sensitive topics on your school’s website, under the Parents tab.

We all play a role in helping our children thrive, and the Timberlane Schools are ready and responsive during this stressful time.  On behalf of Dr. Metzler, Superintendent of Schools, please feel free to contact your child’s school or the Superintendent’s Office, if you have any questions or concerns.


Dr. Roxanne Wilson, Assistant Superintendent
