Students, buses are returning this week

Classes at area schools are scheduled to begin this week. That means school buses will be carrying our children and grandchildren to and from their buildings.

It also means motorists will have to adjust driving habits. The summer months of not exercising an extra measure of caution while buses are on local roads are over.

So, on your way to or from work, remember to keep a sharp eye peeled for those big yellow buses. Obey the law that prohibits passing stopped buses.

Remember, a second or two of inattention can result in a tragedy. Let’s keep the kids safe this year.
