August in upon us and the Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind the public to stay alert and use caution as county schools open their doors for the school year. School zone speed limits will be in effect and school buses will be on the roadways. Remember to use caution when in and around school zones and be attentive as school buses will be stopping often at loading zones for students traveling to and from school. We at the Sheriff’s Office wish students a great school year, and hope to work together with the citizens of Pottawatomie County to ensure the safety of students and motorists.
For information on back to school tips for drivers, visit the National Safety Council Website or contact the Sheriff’s Office with any questions or concerns.
