Holiday break over ... back to school

GREENVILLE — The holiday break is wrapping up and students will be returning to classes next week.

The Greenville ISD returns to classes Tuesday.

Tuesday also means a return to active traffic zones and reminders about school bus safety and the daytime curfew in Greenville.

The Greenville Fire-Rescue Department is also reminding motorists to avoid parking in fire lanes around local schools.

School zones mean reduced speed from the start of the zone to the end of the zone.

Children should be instructed to cross streets at crosswalks, especially if crossing guards are available.

Passing a stopped school bus is illegal and can land a motorists in jail if the bus driver reports them. When a bus is stopped, motorists on either side of the road must stop until the bus driver pulls in the “stop” sign and turns off the flashing lights.

Fire lanes are to be kept clear at all times and that parking is not allowed in marked lanes.

The City of Greenville’s daytime curfew also goes back into effect Monday. Children under 17 should be off city streets between the hours of 9 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. school days. Juveniles are also prohibited from being on local streets between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and between midnight and 6 a.m. on weekends.
