School’s back from summer
Drivers are asked to be extra careful as Rutherford County Schools’ students return from summer break.
The first full day of school begins Wednesday.
Sheriff’s School Crossing Officers will be stationed at every county school each morning and afternoon to help keep students safe and direct the traffic flow.
Drivers are asked to:
• Obey the signals from the School Crossing Officers.
• Slow down the speed limit around schools, especially the slower speeds in school zones.
• Watch for children who are walking or biking to school.
• Keep from texting and driving, especially in school zones.
• Stop for school buses when children are getting on and off the bus.
Please observe and keep children safe, especially in school zones.
