It is exciting to start our fifth year at Mountain Green elementary school.  As you can tell from all of the new homes being built, our school is growing.  This year at Mountain Green Elementary, we will be having our teacher professional training days on the same day of the week as the rest of the district.  Therefore, early out day will be on Wednesdays at 1:15 p.m.   We will be starting each day at 8:30 a.m., which is five minutes earlier this year. The normal time for school ending has not changed, ending time is at 3:20 p.m.

You will be moving along at about 44 feet per second. You then need about 47 feet to bring the vehicle to a safe stop at 30 MPH. This, combined with your reaction time will add about 66 feet to your travel distance, with a total of 114 feet needed before you stop your car- almost double the stopping distance at only 10 MPH over!
