“kept coming across these curious markings on the sidewalk”

“Dear PoPville,

While walking my dog in Cleveland Park, I kept coming across these curious markings on the sidewalk. They were like little piles of pink chalk–not drawn on or spray-painted–and easily brushed away. Each had the exact same shape (an anchor? A skull?) and were placed about 10 feet apart, stretching the length of several sidewalks. Any idea what these markings mean? Found on Woodley Rd NW around the field of the National Cathedral School and also Cathedral Ave NW.”
