Back To School Time

Back To School Time

Tift County Sheriff Gene Scarbrough wants to remind citizens that back to school time is an important event for our entire community.

Students are back in class.  Teachers are implementing new lesson plans for the school year.  Administrators are working with budgets, school bus routes, staffing and school safety concerns.  Parents are coordinating work and school schedules, car pools and support for their students's activities and studies. Businesses are equipping families, teachers and administrators with the supplies they need for a successful school year.  Back to school is a busy time for us all.

Sheriff Scarbrough asks that during this busy time, please be extra cautious in traffic.  Be mindful of our school traffic zones especially during the morning hours and early afternoons.  He says please keep an eye out for potential hazards around our schools and in neighborhoods where children play.  Slow down and increase your stopping distances.

School buses are back on the road.  Be aware of school bus routes in your neighborhood and throughout your daily travel.  Leave plenty of time and space for buses.  With school traffic, the Sheriff says you should anticipate delays in your travel and to leave early so you're not in a rush.  When approaching a school zone or school bus on the road be prepared to stop for bus and pedestrian traffic.

Sheriff Scarbrough would like to thank all of you who help make our education system an integral, positive force in our community.  He said, "our children are counting on us; let's work together to make "back to school" a rewarding, fun and safe time for all Tift County residents."
