Drivers Advised to Watch Their Speed on School Zones For Summer School
KENNEWICK, Wash.-- Many students are out of school for the summer, but school grounds aren't empty.
Summer school classes in Kennewick and Pasco schools started today, and Richland schools have been going for a week now.
The Kennewick School District wants to remind drivers to respect the flashing lights and the 20mph speed limit. Also look for students on crosswalks.
They say some school zones may not have the flashing lights to alert drivers, but speed limit signs are always up.
"With classes generally around 7:50 in the morning, you're going to see more of the classes starting, some of the flashing lights beginning, so the regular hours that you'd expect you want to be slowing down," said Lorraine Cooper, Communications Director for the Kennewick School District.
Lorraine Cooper with the Kennewick School District also says there are two school buses in Kennewick running services right now, so make sure you're keeping an eye out for those as well.
