As a part of Texas Safe Schools Week, the Texas
Department of Public Safety has highway patrol troopers riding buses and
monitoring drivers across the state, Oct. 16-22.
Troopers were at Forbes Middle School this afternoon
monitoring bus pickup as a part of Safe Schools Week to ensure that Texas
drivers are abiding by traffic laws. DPS is reminding drivers that it is
illegal in Texas to pass any school bus that is stopped and operating a visual
signal of any kind – either flashing lights or a stop sign. Troopers will also
be patrolling bus pick up and drop off locations this week looking for drivers
who are in violation of any laws.
Georgetown ISD shares the mutual goal of assuring the
community that public schools are places where students, parents, and staff are
safe during the course of the entire school day.
