Back to School Time in Milam County
As we can see on Facebook and elsewhere kids and parents are geared up and getting the kiddos back to school.
Back to school time is an important event for our entire community. Kids are back in class, teachers are implementing new lesson plans for the school year, and our administrators are working with budgets, school bus routes, and school safety concerns. Parents are coordinating work and school schedules, car pools and support for their student’s activities and studies. Businesses are equipping families, teachers and administrators with the supplies they need for a successful school year. Back to school is a busy time for us all.
During this busy time, please be extra cautious in traffic. Be mindful of our school traffic zones especially during the morning hours and early afternoons. Keep an extra look out for potential hazards around our schools and in neighborhoods where children play. Please slow down and increase your stopping distances.
School buses are back on the road so be aware of school bus routes in your area and throughout your daily travel. Leave plenty of time and space for buses. With school traffic, anticipate delays in your travel and leave early so you’re not in a rush. Also, when approaching a school zone or school bus on the road, be prepared to stop for bus and pedestrian traffic.
Milam County and your Sheriff’s Office working together with you to make this another GREAT school year!
…and I am looking forward to some great sporting events this year with all of our Milam County schools and High School Bands. Praying you all have a safe season and wishing you success and wins in your programs!
