Bike Safety:

In the interest of student safety on campus, we are asking that ALL bike riders, students and adults, walk their bikes on the sidewalks at all times on campus.  This includes entering and exiting the PDB "bus lane" on Charter Road and as students come around past the Administration Building and drop-off/ pick-up area. 
Please note that the bike racks have been relocated to support students in walking their bikes. -The rack from the front circle is now on the far edge of the Rt 111 playground, adjacent to the High School Commons fence. -The bike racks by the Administration Building are now closer to Charter Road, next to the stockade fence outside the Admin Building.
