As the first day of school approaches for Fleming County Schools, school officials and the school system’s transportation department are urging drivers to be aware of a higher volume of traffic in the county beginning Thursday, August 11, the first day of school for students.
Drivers need to be alert and aware of children loading and unloading buses. Yellow flashing lights indicate that the bus is preparing to stop to pick up or drop off children. Drivers need to slow down and prepare to stop. Red flashing lights and an extended stop arm signal indicate that the bus is stopped, and that children are getting on or off. Cars must stop a safe distance away and not proceed until the red lights stop flashing, the stop sign folds back, and the bus continues on its way.
