Keep Your Students Safe on the Way to School

Post Date:08/07/2019 4:30 PM

Peoria Unified School District schools started the new school year on Aug. 7. Picking up and dropping off little ones at schools can be hectic for students and their parents. Long lines, confusion and frustration can lead to dangerous behaviors by both students and drivers. Peoria Unified School District and Peoria Traffic Engineering work closely to minimize the negative impact on families, as well as the surrounding communities, while still maintaining the safety of children. Remember to slow down in school zones, yield to children in the crosswalks and do not drive distracted. To ensure the safety of all students, the Peoria Police Department will be strictly enforcing traffic safety and parking violations in school zones.
