Dr. Wolfe: If you are a student who drives to school, it is imperative that you drive slowly through the parking lot. If you continue to speed we will revoke your privilege to drive to school. It is mandated by the city of Dallas that as you come and go, you do not drive through the neighborhoods. You need to stay on the major roads. This is also true for faculty and staff. I’m stressing these things because we’ve had some neighbors calling and complaining. This is crucial because we are in the middle of renewing our zoning permits. If too many complaints are made they could decline our permit. Also remember to adhere to the school zone speed limit.
