Keller ISD students begin school today, which means Keller police officers will be as well to keep an eye on campuses and school zones. Here are a few reminders from KPD about keeping children safe and avoiding a citation:
- School Zones: Drivers are required to reduce their speeds within marked school zones to the posted school zone speeds limits. Speed limits vary based on a street’s normal speed, so be sure to check the signs.
- Cell Phones: Handheld cell phone use, including texting, is illegal when traveling through an active school zone. This law was expanded last fall to include the property of a public elementary, middle or junior high school. This does NOT include vehicles that are stopped, or drivers using a hands-free device or making an emergency call.
- Marked Crosswalks and School Crossing Guards: Traffic in both directions must stop when pedestrians are in a marked crosswalk or when a crossing guard is holding up a stop sign. These crossing guards are there to keep our children safe, so please treat them with respect.
- School Buses: Passing a school bus displaying its flashing red lights and/or stop sign can cost you between $500 and $1,250. Traffic in both directions across all lanes is required to stop for a school bus if there is no median on the road; if there is a median, all the traffic on the same side as the bus must stop.
Each year throughout its eleven-year history the GRACE Gala has offered a raffle. Past raffle prizes have been everything from a three-carat diamond ring to an exotic Hawaiian destination resort to cars, cars and cars—Mercedes Benz, Lincolns and, since 2010, the choice of a convertible Camaro or Silverado Extended Cab Pickup from the Thompson Group at Classic Chevrolet.
College Colors Day is an annual celebration dedicated to promoting college-readiness and the traditions and spirit that embody the college experience by encouraging fans across America to wear their favorite college colors/gear.
Keller ISD is excited to participate in this fun, district-wide event and is encouraging all students, faculty, staff members, and administrators to dress in their favorite college attire on Friday, August 29, 2014.
Use #KISDCollegeColors to follow along and see photos from our campuses!
In addition, a contest will be held in search of the district's 'Most Spirited' student and employee from each level (ES, MS/IS, HS, Admin Facilities). Prizes will be awarded.
