With summer holidays soon over, it’s back to school time for students around the region.

Students will be returning to classes in School District 76 as well as Medicine Hat Catholic and Prairie Rose School divisions.

That brings a caution from Medicine Hat Police, who say drivers need to be extra cautions around school and playground zones.

Police are reminding drivers, the 30 km/h school and playground speed limit starts at 7:30 am and runs until 9:00 pm daily.

The Traffic Unit will be conducting extra enforcement in those zones for the first couple of weeks in September.
