Today is the day Teton County Wyoming students return to their respective schools, and in a rural community such as ours, it also means the familiar yellow school busses will be on the roads once again.  Teton County Sheriff Jim Whalen saysespecially during these first days of the school year, motorists need to exercise extra caution on the roads and especially around school bus stops.  Whalen says it is important that the motorists are aware that the kids are out and about – and he adds that some of those children are not used to being at a school bus stop.  Consequently, from a public safety posture, Whalen asks that when motorists approach a school bus stop and seek children present, they slow down a little and be very watchful.  Whalen also reminds that Wyoming traffic laws prohibit motorists from passing a school bus that is displaying its flashing red lights.  Failure to stop can result in a hefty fine.  Whalen says officers will be very evident along school bus routes as a reminder to motorists to be careful.  Meanwhile, students in Teton County School District 401 in Teton Valley also begin their first day of classes today.  As in Teton County Wyoming, Teton County Sheriff Tony Liford is urging those sharing area roads with school busses there to be alert.
