With all Izard County schools starting a new year this coming week, please be mindful of stopped school buses loading and unloading kids. NEVER pass a stopped school bus with its flashing yellow or red lights activated. Give plenty of room so the bus driver can see your vehicle and to give the kids plenty of room to safely get on or off the bus.
