Many Prince William County students are returning to school this week.
Drivers are reminded to be cautious while traveling through school zones.
On Thursday and Friday, in-person classes are beginning for fourth, fifth, sixth and ninth graders who have chosen this instruction option. The start date for each student depends on which “house” they are assigned to.
Students in seventh, eighth, and 10th- through 12th-grade are heading back on March 2 and March 3.
The Prince William County School Board approved the schedule at a meeting last week, according to a release from Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS).
Those who have chosen the virtual option will continue to learn through this method. Anyone who is set to go in person and would like to learn virtually should reach out to the school they attend.
With in-person classes comes the return of flashing school zones lights.
The lights turn on 30 minutes before the first morning and afternoon bell and turn off 30 minutes following the first bell, according to a release from the Prince William County Police Department (PWCPD).
Motorists should observe traffic signals, and be careful when driving through school zones and toward school buses that are stopped and have their lights on.
“As you see these flashing lights, please be reminded that school is actually in session and we need to pay attention and do those … posted speed limit[s],” Neabsco District Supervisor Victor Angry said.
