School Zones Back in Action

school zone

The 2016-2017 school year for the White Settlement Independent School District got underway today. That means the return of 20 mph school zones. Please be extra attentive while driving near the schools in the mornings and afternoons as our neighborhood children come and go. Also, remember that there is a complete restriction on using cell phones in an active school zone. This includes making and receiving calls. There are only three permitted cell phone uses in an active school zone. If there is an emergency situation and you are calling police or fire or medical, any emergency or safety personnel that are using their cell phone in the performance of their duties, or the use of a completely hands-free method of using your cell phone. Let’s all work together to make this a safe and prosperous school year for all those in the WSISD!
