Crossing Street at Smith Valley School
Crossing Guard Dorothy Lofgren holds up a sign for students from Smith Valley School to cross Batavia Lane on Tuesday afternoon. The speed limit in the school zone on US 2 drops to 45 mph during school hours and to 25 mph on Batavia Lane. Principal Laili Komenda worries about the proscpet of an accident at the intersection. “We’re making it as safe as we can,” she said. “We’ve done a great job of having nobody hurt yet, but we don’t want to look back and say, ‘Oh, we should have.’”

Some children cross U.S. 2 to reach the school. Others get dropped
off at the convenience store across the street and must cross
Batavia Lane to get to Smith Valley School.
