Resident appreciates efficiency of workers at school crosswalk

To the editor:

I want to say thank you to the volunteers and/or teachers who have helped create a safer and quicker way to travel Highway 214 by the (Woodburn) High School on school days.

Once these volunteers and/or teachers started helping to direct the students at the crosswalk, the traffic has moved much better. Rather than one or two students trying to cross at a time, the volunteer holds a group, much like a traffic light, and then lets several students cross.

This has been a welcome improvement for the drivers, but I am sure it is safer for the students, too. I have meant to say this for a long time. Thank you.
