With school back in session, be on the watch out for school children and busses in our neighborhood.  

Please remember that Virginia's law requires: 

    -- Drivers must stop for stopped school buses with flashing red lights and an extended stop sign when they approach from any direction on a highway, private road or school driveway. 
    -- Vehicles must stop and remain stopped until all persons are clear and the bus moves again. 
    --You must also stop if the bus is loading or unloading passengers and the signals are not on.
    -- Drivers do not have to stop if they are traveling in the opposite direction on a roadway with a median or barrier dividing the road and the bus is on the opposite side of the median or barrier.
