Summer break is just about over, which means buses on the roadway and kids walking or riding their bikes to school. The Sturgeon Bay Police Department would like to remind drivers to be aware of the kids crossing the streets. Also, please leave distance between your vehicle and the bus for safety of the kids and to allow time to stop. Be aware of the flashing lights and the extended stop sign on the buses and make sure you stop. The Sturgeon Bay Police Department wishes all the kids a safe and enjoyable school year.
