CPD reminds you “this day creates a lot of change on our streets with the amount of school bus traffic and parents driving their children to school. Leave early and allow yourself extra time during your travels. Most importantly, be patient and watch for active bus stops and children walking to school. As a reminder, if you are dropping off or picking up your child, you can not park on or block any street. For those picking up and dropping off their child at the high school, please use Middle St which is the designated area to do so.

CPD will be patrolling the schools in the Borough to make sure students are safe and motorists are obeying the applicable laws. We wish everyone a very safe first day of school.”
