The Seymour Police Department is urging motorists to be extra vigilant in school zones and around school buses, especially during pick up and drop off times.

Look both ways and use due regard while operating near a school campus, and yield to school buses whose lights are flashing and stop arms are extended. Our children are our future and it is our duty as a whole to protect their health and safety.
