School is back in session in the 27J School District on August 10th. This means a few things!
- You will see more kids on the streets, waiting for the school bus, walking, riding bikes or driving to school. Please be on the lookout for kids and help keep our roads and community safe!
- My 16-year old son is getting his license in September so stay off the roads! Just kidding! He’s a safe driver and will have completed online driving courses and several in person before he is licensed. Remember that if your teen driver is a good student, they can earn a Smart Student Discount with Allstate. As parents of teen drivers all know, we can use all of the discounts possible when it comes to insuring teens.
- More than half of all teens will have an accident in their first year of driving. This is a major factor as to why insurance premiums are higher for teen drivers since they are inexperienced. Make sure to have the conversation with your teen drivers before the accident occurs. We have a Parent/Teen Driving Agreement outlined for your chat. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call or text 303.219.1470 and we will send you a complimentary copy.
- Did you know that the Rippy Agency owns and operates Elsie the Little Free Mobile Library Charter #134624? That’s right! Elsie is a 1966 vintage Canned Ham Yellowstone trailer that was converted into a bookstore, then we turned it into a Little Free Library! We had lots of support from our community to help raise funds for her vinyl wrap as seen above. She is parked just north of the AMC movie theater and open at least five days a week. Please bring the kids and/or your family by and take some books for the whole family. We have a little bit of everything inside!
