Back to School – Driver Awareness

The LaSalle Police Service would like to welcome all of our students back to school. Many things have changed over the past six or seven months and we have all had to modify the way we do things. One of the modifications that affect our students is increased walking distances for students who normally take the school bus. Another modification is that school days and times are staggered for certain students due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our crossing guards will be ready and waiting to assist our students on their journey to school but we need motorists to be aware and focused on their driving and their surroundings.
Expect to see increased pedestrian traffic in all areas of the town. Please be patient with our students and our crossing guards. They are doing their best to keep our children safe and we ask that you do your part as well.
School buses will also be operating as normal and drivers will need to expect delays when the buses pick up our students. It has been some time since we had school buses on our roadways and we remind motorists to stop when the red flashing lights are illuminated.
Through patience, caution, and awareness of our surroundings we can all work together to ensure the safety our students and crossing guards.
