With school soon to start again, I want to take this opportunity and provide some safety reminders to the community. Once again, more vehicles, pedestrians and buses will be on the roads as students, teachers and parents travel to and from school. After school activities will also begin with students, coaches and parents going to and from their events. Morning and afternoon traffic will also include buses that will make frequent stops as students are picked up and dropped off.
Parents please take the time to talk with your children and explain that they should always wait for their bus far enough away from the road so that they are not in danger of being struck by passing motorists. They should not enter the roadway, even if their bus has stopped to pick them up until they have looked both ways and seen that traffic has come to a complete standstill.
