Slow in School Zones as School Resumes


Shelby County School students return to school on Monday, August 6. Parents who are dropping children off for school should plan for increases in traffic and delays during the first week of school. Be sure to drive slowly in school zones, obey crossing guards and watch out for those walking to school.

Drivers who normally travel through school zones, but are not delivering children to school, are encouraged to use alternate routes. School zones operate between 6:30 a.m. and 9:05 a.m. each weekday, so be sure to keep an eye out for safety.
