Conway police spokesperson said it’s time for all residents to remember that school is back in session.
As Conway schools begin the school year Monday, and others in the city have already begun, Woodruff said it’s important for all to remember that it’s time to share the road with students around school campuses.
Woodruff said the police department will be in many the area of many school campuses as drivers get “back in the routine.”
While stating one campus is not necessarily more congested than the other, Woodruff said elementary schools may see a little more traffic, due to all children being picked up.
“When school starts, it’s congested everywhere,” she said. “We just want to remind everyone to be mindful that school has started. If you’re going through a school zone remember to leave earlier and don’t become impatient, because those areas will take time to get through.”
Woodruff offered the same tips for the Conway Senior High School, which will be surrounded, once again, by the construction on Prince Street.
“There is a lot of construction in the area,” she said. “Drivers, both parents and students, need to be careful and watch because lanes change and may be uneven. You might see kids walking close to traffic, so it’s important to remember to share the road.”
