Back to School

Summer is almost over and that mean school is about to start for students. The Chandler Unified School District is beginning the school year 2015-2016 today July 20th.   Chandler Unified wants to remind you to be extra careful around schools.  Motorists may experience heavy traffic around schools this morning and this afternoon. Be prepared to encounter school buses picking up and dropping off children at designated bus stops. Also be aware of children walking or bicycling to and from school.

Another reminder that the speed limit in schools is 15 mph and passing in school zones is prohibited.
