The Milford Police Department is urging motorists to be aware of children walking to school in the early morning hours and walking home in the mid-to late-afternoon hours.

Beginning Aug. 31, some Milford School District students will begin to return to class, with all students reporting by Sept. 5.

Motorists should also be aware of children waiting at bus stops throughout the district and should prepare to stop for stopped school buses picking up or dropping off children. Milford police also encourage parents to make sure children wear clothing visible at bus stops and as they walk to school.

Milford School District serves the Milford, Lincoln, Ellendale, Houston and portions of the Greenwood area.
