Anacortes Schools start on Thursday, Sept. 5, and the school district urges drivers to slow down and watch for pedestrians, especially in school zones. School zones can be particularly busy, especially before and after school.

Drivers are reminded to share the road with pedestrians, school buses, and bicyclists. The speed limit in school zones is 20 MPH.

The district also has new start times at several schools this year. 

The area around the high school remains a construction site as we continue phase III of the project – remodeling of Brodniak Hall and the gym, and construction of a new Cap Sante High School, career and technical education, drama and music classrooms. Please be mindful of construction vehicles and changing road conditions as we work to finish the project.

The National Safety Council (www.nsc.org) offers a number of good tips for drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians. We urge everyone out there to be safe and follow the rules of the road.
