SY)--Enid Public Schools teachers and some students are back in the classroom today for the first day of the news school year. Most district students are expected to participate in “in-classroom” instruction, but there is an option for remote, virtual attendance. Schools have several mask and social-distancing procedures that will be followed for student and staff safety. The return of the school year means the return of school zones. Obey the school zone speed limits, and remember to follow the rules when a school bus has its flashing lights on. If you violate the school zone limit, be prepared to pay. Speeding 10 mph or less over the speed limit in a school zone could result in a $144 fine. Speeding 11 mph or more in a school zone could result in a $244 fine. As with speeding in a school zone, passing a stopped school bus with its lights and stop sign active carries a fine of $144.
