Illinois law states: When approaching a marked school zone on days when school is in operation and children are present, a driver must discontinue wireless/cell-phone use, reduce speed to 20 mph, and stop and yield the right-of-way to any children or adults in the crosswalk area. In addition, drivers are reminded to obey the regulatory or guide signs in our parking lots, as marked. This is especially important for the safety of our children as they are being dropped off before school, or picked up after. Finally, please remember that all traffic must stop while school bus “stop” arms are out and buses are loading and unloading students – including all school facilities, roads, drives, parking lots, etc. By law, drivers are not allowed to pass a stopped school bus when the stop arm is displayed.
