Students are heading back to school today in Abbotsford.

Abbotsford police send out safety reminders for back to school

New fluorescent poles, pedestrian tips among tips sent out to Abbotsford residents

Summer vacation is officially over for Abbotsford students, as class is back in session starting today.

Dismissal times vary for each school, and the Abbotsford School District recommends checking your school’s website for specific bell times.

District wide, this will be a half day for all students.

In light of all the students returning to school, the Abbotsford Police Department has sent out a number of friendly reminders about safety.

One new feature added throughout the community are the new fluorescent “school zone” banners that have been attached on every school zone pole.

The APD has also sent out a reminder for pedestrians to always be aware of cars and obey all appropriate traffic signs.

Another very important reminder for drivers is the fact that red lights flashing on a school bus means stop. Drivers must remain stopped in both directions while the red lights are flashing.

Regular school hours are scheduled to begin on Wednesday, Sept. 4.
