First Day of School 03 Sep 13

Today (Tuesday) is the first day of school for most students around the state and officials have some reminders as the children head off to the classroom.

Public Safety officials say watch out for kids waiting for their school bus at the start of the school day and getting off buses after school in the afternoon.  If school bus lights are flashing, be ready to stop. A school bus stop arm is like a red light and motorists should not move until the sign is retracted.

Officials also remind motorists to focus on the road and not your cell phone.
