The Oro Valley Police Department (OVPD) would like to remind the community that most private and public schools are back in session this week. Please exercise caution when driving as there will be an increase in children walking or riding bikes.

As a reminder:

You may not pass a school bus when it stops and displays the stop sign and flashing red lights. All vehicles must stop! This includes both directions of travel when a physical median is not present.

The school zone is 15 miles per hour. You must be at or below 15 miles per hour prior to entering the zone. The first sign marks the zone as you enter. It is prohibited to pass another vehicle while in a school zone. Please pay attention to the crossing guard’s directions and be prepared to stop.

School crosswalks require drivers to stop at the point a pedestrian enters into the crosswalk.

Please do not text and drive.

OVPD is anticipating a large amount of vehicle and pedestrian traffic, so we ask that you start your day earlier and give yourself plenty of time for increased congestion. There will also be an increased police presence around schools to ensure safety.
