It's Back-to-School Time!


Hello, Faulkner County!

The summer is nearly ending, and it's already back-to-school time - a very important time for our entire community.

Students are returning and starting a new school year, and teachers are implementing new lesson plans for the all of the students. Administrators are addressing school budgets, bus routes, staffing, and safety concerns. Parents are coordinating work and school schedules, carpools, and supporting their children's activities and studies. Businesses are equipping families, teachers, and administrators with the supplies they need for a successful school year.

I want to take this time to remind you to please be extra cautious in traffic during this busy time. Be mindful of our school traffic zones - especially in the morning and early afternoons. Keep an extra lookout for potential hazards around our schools and neighborhoods where children play. Slow down and increase your stopping distances.

As school buses are back on the road, be aware of school bus routes in your neighborhood and throughout your daily travel (make sure to allow plenty of time and leave space for buses). With school traffic, anticipate delays in your trip and leave early so you're not in a rush. As always, when approaching a school zone or school bus on the road, be prepared to stop for bus and pedestrian traffic.

Thank you who help make our education system an integral, positive force in our community. Our children are counting on us - let's work together to make back-to-school time a rewarding, fun, and safe time for all Faulkner County residents.
