Today September 4, 2018 your children returned to school at our local school complex. Traffic will be heavy and many kids will be walking along our pathways to their individual schools. Please keep that in mind when you are traveling our roadways. Keep our kids safe by slowing to a speed where you may stop at a moments notice. This is an exciting time for your children, reuniting with their friends and beginning a new chapter in their lives, so don't expect them to remember to look both ways when crossing the roadway. If you live within a short distance to the school complex please help with the traffic volume and allow them to walk with their friends to school. THE SMITHSBURG POLICE DEPARTMENT is always patrolling the pathways to the schools keeping your kids safe while traveling to and from the complex. This is an exciting time for them lets all keep it that way. TO THE KIDS ATTENDING OUR SCHOOLS, GOOD LUCK and WELCOME BACK !!!!!
