Traffic prevented me from getting to all our area schools today, opening day. I will get by and stay active with our schools.
Alexandra and I wish everyone a happy, safe and successful school year. We all are proud of our public and private schools here in Palmetto Bay. Student performance off the charts, performing arts, magnets, and participation in and with our community. One again, we look forward to another year of our students, teachers and administrators making the Palmetto Bay community proud.

I always enjoy the first day - the big smiles - from parents as they drop their young students off for the new year. On the less happy side: The Summer traffic holiday is over. We are back to school in session commuting.
Please drive carefully and be patient.
Very truly yours,
Eugene Flinn, Mayor
