Davenport Speed Limit 40 MPH
Please notice and obey the new 40 mph Davenport speed limit signs, as well as all other speed limits on Highway 1. This is a dangerous road and the decreased speed limit is a direct response to accidents in the area. Please do your part to improve safety. All speed limits are actively enforced by local local enforcement officials. Also, please drive slowly and cautiously on Ocean St. when dropping your student off in the morning - there are a lot of kids and people around!
A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who participated to make Farm-to-Table a success, including donating time, money, or food, buying tickets, selling tickets, etc. This event literally makes FoodLab possible.
And what does FoodLab do? FoodLab provides thousands of healthy home-cooked meals for students, staff, and parents each year. FoodLab teaches cooking, math, safety, confidence, and problem-solving skills to fifth and sixth graders. FoodLab supports local farms and ranches.
