Mount Erie, Island View, and Fidalgo Elementary will be opening to students next Monday, November 2nd. Anyone traveling through these school zones will notice a significant shift in foot and vehicle traffic patterns. Drivers, please slow down in these areas and exercise patience. According to the Washington Traffic Safety Commission, 13 pedestrians lost their lives in the Northwest region of the state last year. Let’s welcome Anacortes students, teachers, and staff back to school by doing our part to keep them safe on their way to and from school.
