LEWISBORO, N.Y. -- One of the first actions new John Jay High School Principal Jessica Godin took this year was to install two speed bumps on the campus.

“The speed bumps were in the works for several years,” she explained. “We identified a safety concern with cars driving too fast through the front circle.” With the help of Director of Facilities Paul Christensen and his team, optimal spots for the speed bumps were identified near the entrance and exit to the school grounds.

The campus has a posted speed limit of 15 miles per hour, and the speed bumps, installed at the end of September, are already making a difference.

“We have received a lot of compliments from staff and parents already,” said Assistant Principal Antonio Ramos. “It has been all positive feedback from people who appreciate that the speed bumps were installed.” Added Godin, “This has created a safer environment for our students, parents and staff members.”
