Some kids will be on way to schools around Langley

Private schools are back in session soon and their school zones will be enforced, say RCMP.

The Langley RCMP issued a reminder to drivers this week that private schools will be starting up after Labour Day, regardless of what happens with the public teachers contract dispute with the province.

That means that 30 km/h zones will be back in place for private schools on Sept. 2.

Efforts to crack down on dangerous driving around schools typically ramp up in September.

“If you as a motorist enter a school zone and are uncertain as to whether the school is public or private, I would recommend slowing to the 30 km/h speed out of an abundance of caution,” said Insp. Murray Power, the Langley RCMP Operations Support Officer.  

School zones are in effect from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. when school is in session. Private schools are marked with signs, just as public schools are.

Langley RCMP encourages parents and family members to talk to the children about school bus safety now, before the new school year starts. When school is opening in the morning and closing in the afternoon, it is a busy and crowded area. There are children being dropped off or picked up by both school buses and parents.

• King’s School, 21783 76B Ave.

• Credo Christian, 21846 52nd Ave.

• Langley Christian High School, 22702 48th Ave.
