“School will be back in session starting next week. In the mornings and afternoons, school buses will be stopping frequently to pick up and drop off children,” the chief said.

Chief Robinson commented that motorists should remember that it is illegal to pass a stopped school bus. Chief Robinson also advised that speed limits in school zones are strictly enforced. Chief Robinson would also like to encourage parents to get involved in their children’s academic endeavors.

“A good education will help prepare your children for their future,” he said. “Monitor their school attendance and performance.”
