The incident did not occur on school property and there was no threat to the school, faculty or students.

**** TRAFFIC ALERT For Saturday September 15th ***** Plan for traffic delays and minor lane modifications from approximately 7am to noon in the area of Black Road, just east of Route 59. There will be a lot of school bus and pedestrian traffic in the area. Plan ahead, drive slowly, use alternate routes.

Yes Shorewood it's about that time..... As summer draws to a close and children start heading back to school, family life can get pretty hectic. It's important to remember – and share with your children – some key tips that will help keep them safe and healthy throughout the school year. Getting to School Whether children walk, ride their bicycle or take the bus to school, it is vitally important that they – and the motorists around them – take proper safety precautions. Walkers » Walk on the sidewalk; if there is no sidewalk and you must walk in the street, walk facing traffic Before crossing the street, stop and look left, right and left again to see if cars are coming Never dart out in front of a parked car Parents: Practice walking to school with your child, crossing streets at crosswalks when available Never walk while texting or talking on the phone Do not walk while using headphones Bike Riders » Always wear a helmet that is fitted and secured properly Children need to know the rules of the road: Ride single file on the right side of the road, come to a complete stop before crossing the street and walk the bike across Watch for opening car doors and other hazards Use hand signals when turning Wear bright-colored clothing Bus Riders » Teach children the proper way to get on and off the bus Line up 6 feet away from the curb as the bus approaches If seat belts are available, buckle up Wait for the bus to stop completely before standing Do not cross in front of the bus if possible, or walk at least 10 feet ahead until you can see the other drivers Drivers, Share the Road » Don't block crosswalks Yield to pedestrians in crosswalks, and take extra care in school zones Never pass a vehicle stopped for pedestrians Never pass a bus loading or unloading children The area 10 feet around a school bus is the most dangerous for children; stop far enough back to allow them to safely enter and exit the bus

Road Improvement Update: The contractor is scheduled to begin driving piles into the ground to support the new pedestrian bridge on Monday (8/13) at the intersection of Rt 52 and River Rd.
