Bulletin Staff Report

School will begin Tuesday for thousands of students in Redmond, Jefferson County, Crook County, Sisters and Culver school districts, with Bend-La Pine Schools opening its doors for most of its students on Wednesday.

With crowds of children walking or riding the bus to school Tuesday, drivers should remember to slow down to 20 miles per hour in school zones between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. and stop for crossing children. Drivers also are required to stop for school buses that have turned on their red safety lights.

For more information on when specific school districts and grades officially start class this week — or next week for kindergartners in some school districts — read The Bulletin’s previous article from Aug. 21 detailing school start times or check your school district’s website.
