The Start Of Summer Break For Most Central Arkansas Students
Today is the last day of school for most students in Central Arkansas.
As students are out for the summer, officials are asking drivers to be on the lookout for students who may be walking, biking or skateboarding.
Deborah Roush is with the Pulaski County Special School District.
“The Pulaski County School District has had two students in the last three weeks involved in hit-and-run accidents. They’ve been pedestrians. And we really want to make sure that all of our kids are safe over the summer,” said Roush.
Roush says starting Monday, with teen drivers not heading to school in the morning, the roads should be less busy for people heading to work.
