Collier County Public Schools welcomed students back to school today. Superintendent Kamela Patton and Collier County Sheriff Kevin Rambosk got involved in the festivities and spent some time this morning directing traffic and helping students cross the street to get to Pelican Marsh Elementary.
“We want to say a big thanks to all of our teachers, administrators, and our support staff. They all come together to make the first day wonderful for our kids,” Patton says. “Also to our parents and to our community members and most importantly our partnerships and probably our biggest partnership with the Sheriff’s Office. We want to thank Sheriff Rambosk and our YRBDs or Youth Relation Bureau Deputies and the important role they play in our kids’ lives on a day to day basis.”
Rambosk says drivers should be cautious during the first week back to school.
“On first day of school traffic can be congested and confusing we ask all drivers to please leave early, don’t get frustrated, let’s help make sure we get our kids to school safe today.”
He says for the first four of five days he wants people to get used to school buses being on the roads again and students being in the streets.
