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.
