School ZoneUSD 407 students return to school this week and local authorities caution Russell residents and parents to be extra careful when driving through or near school zones around the city.

Russell Police Chief Dale Weimaster reminds parents of school children to abide by the traffic laws in school zones by not double parking and blocking traffic, and also by treating the yellow zones as pick-up and drop-off areas only.

Weimaster's cautioning goes beyond just parents though. He says all Russell citizens should be cautious and slow down when driving near the school areas.

USD 407 students go back to school on Wednesday.
