[August 07, 2019]
It's nearing the time for children to begin the registration process
for the upcoming school year. It's hard to believe the summer
is flying by so quickly. Our sports enthusiasts will soon be
meeting with coaches and gearing up to prepare for the upcoming
seasons. Parents will be "on the go" to pick up school
supplies and new clothes to replace those their children have
outgrown. The hectic lifestyle of beginning the new school
year is rapidly approaching us.
With all this in mind, please don't allow time pressures to have a
negative effect on your driving through preoccupied thoughts.
These thoughts can at times produce an inability to adequately pay
attention to everyday driving distractions.
Please be alert and attentive to the high volumes of vehicular and
pedestrian traffic. We should be vigilant anytime we are
"behind the wheel," but please be extra cautious while the volume of
our most valuable community asset - our youth - are out in greater

The Mount Pulaski Police Department will be monitoring the school
areas during arrival and departure times. Obey the law with
regard to school buses that are loading or unloading,. Pay
attention to the extra traffic and stay within the realm of "safety
first" when dropping off or picking up students. There will be
zero tolerance for any type of recklessness in a vehicle while our
children are present.
It is the police department's hope that we all have a safe,
productive, and enjoyable school year! Welcome back kids!

Mount Pulaski Chief of Police]
