School Safety

A Community Safety Committee was formed to discuss ideas and apply for grants. The committee has representatives from the Rice Lake school board, school district, city council, city street and police departments, Main Street Association, and several citizens. This joint effort has successfully applied for and received a planning grant from the state of Wisconsin.

The committee wants to inform children and parents about the new signs that are now located in and around school zones. The City of Rice Lake has recently installed these new signs.  The inside of this brochure (see the "Sign Update Brochure" below)explains what each of the3 new signs mean, where they are located, and why they are put there.
