KEYSTONE HEIGHTS, Fla. -- It’s back to school for Clay County students Tuesday!
The Clay County Sheriff’s Office warns parents to leave a little earlier to drop students off for school.
We’re told this should be done because of construction impacting local roads, especially around Kingsley and Blanding.
The sheriff’s office also tells drivers to be on the lookout for school busses.
Remember, when a school bus stops and turns on its flashing lights and extends the “stop” sign, you must stop. Officers say the only exception is if there is an unpaved median of at least five feet, a raised median, or a physical barrier separating your vehicle from the stopped school bus. Citations for passing a stopped school bus start at $256.
Crossing guards will also be out on the roads this morning. Clay County will have deputies in these zones who will enforce the reduced speed limit. Citation amounts can vary from $101 for a non-moving citation to $151 for a moving violation.
Fines start at $141 and can exceed $591 for speeding through a school zone.
