Tonganoxie police chief, USD 464 superintendent remind motorists of new school year
Tonganoxie police and school officials are asking local residents to be mindful of youths walking to and from school with the start of a new school year Thursday.
In a release, Tonganoxie police Chief Jeff Brandau and Tonganoxie USD 464 Superintendent Randy Weseman asked motorists to pay special attention to students as they use school crosswalks, as well as all pedestrians in school zones.
Brandau asks that motorists also pay attention to the 20 mph school zones, which are marked with flashing lights and warning signs in and around Tonganoxie schools.
Tonganoxie police, Leavenworth County Sheriff’s office deputies and Kansas Highway Patrol troopers will be strictly enforcing the speed zones during hours of operation before and after school, Brandau said in the release.
