Season for safety

Anew school year begins this week for three of the school districts in the Free Press distribution area. The other three districts will begin next week. Safety is always a concern at this time of year, especially for younger students. A few reminders:

? State law prohibits passing a stopped school bus.

? If your child walks to school, choose the safest route and walk it with your child; teach them to watch for traffic when crossing a street.

? If riding a bike to school, children should wear a helmet and follow the rules of the road; kids riding on the left side of the street is a frequent and unnerving sight in our small towns.

? If driving them to school, drop off your child in a safe area; make sure they leave the vehicle on the curb side. ?DR
