School Zone Cameras Are Back As Of Today
On Wednesday, September 1, 2021, Shoreline School District schools will be back in session. Students will be physically back on school grounds and school bell times go back to normal. The flashers and school zone cameras will be active and enforceable beginning September 1, 2021.
The cameras will be active and enforceable during these times:
Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.*
*Wednesday Early Release times are 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and 1:40 p.m. to 2:20 p.m.
It is very important to remember that drivers are still required to obey the posted speed limit and lower their speed to 20 mph when children are present in the school zones, regardless of warning flashers and designated school zone times. School classes may not be in session, but other events may be taking place (sports, after school events, etc.). Officers may still issue infractions for this violation.
"Early Release Days" will be held on Wednesdays when there are five days of school in the week (no holidays or non-student days) and release students 100 minutes before the regular end of the school day.
"Half Day Releases" will be held on November 24 (day before Thanksgiving) and June 17 (last day of school) for grades K-12. There will also be half-days for elementary schools and Cascade K-8 for conferences on November 1-5, 2021, and March 7-11, 2022.
The camera system is operational during normal school days. The system is not operational during scheduled school holidays and summer breaks.
