Back to School Time!

BY LEANN DILBECK –

Area students will be returning to school Monday morning and officials are urging everyone to take added precautions while driving.

  • Pay special attention to reduced speed in school zones.
  • Pedestrian traffic may be increased so please pay close attention to the shoulders of the roads and cross-walks.
  • Exercise extreme caution around all stopped school buses for students who may be loading or unloading.

The intersection of Dallas Avenue and Morrow Street in Mena is traditionally very congested. Please exercise extreme caution and close attention to law enforcement officials who will be on-site to assist with traffic flow.

Please allow plenty of time to reach your destination to allow for congestion and reduced speed in school zones.
