School Zone Safety

Thursday, August 27, 2015 - 2:33pm

School starts on Tuesday, September 1st.  School speed limits will be in effect when children are present and when crossing guards are in a crosswalk signed as a school crossing.  Drivers should use extra caution in school zones and obey crossing guards at all times. 

Drivers should also pay attention to parking signs as many school areas have extra parking restrictions.  “No Parking” signs means that student pick up and drop off are allowed as long as the driver remains in the vehicle.  “No Stopping, Standing or Parking” signs mean pick up and drop off are not allowed.
