Marking the start of school year, reminder of speed zones

Shockingly diverse kindergarten group in Paris

A new school year is full of anticipation and enthusiasm! For students, September and school start up is an exciting time. It is an opportunity to meet with past classmates and to make new friends.

On Sept. 7, several hundred new students will be starting Kindergarten and thousands more students will return to class and this means more children walking and biking on our roads.

To help our children get safely to school motorists need to take special care while driving through school zones and playgrounds.

School Speed Zones are in effect school days, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with a maximum of 30 km/h. Watch and be ready to stop for children waiting to cross the road and disembarking from vehicles.

Playground zones are in effect all year: 8:30 a.m. to one hour after sunset.

On behalf of your Richmond First trustees, together let’s help parents, students and staff get off to a good start to the new school year.
