There are also might be sidewalks that are still snow covered and not passable. In these cases, students might be standing or walking in the roadway or in area that can be difficult for motorists to see.

Motorists should use extreme caution when encountering children in the roadway or when in areas where the height of the snow makes it difficult or impossible to see what may be coming. Parents are encouraged to speak with their children about the importance of being extremely careful as they go back to school in these conditions.

Motorists are also reminded that they are required by law to stop for any school bus when its red lights are flashing.
