Students at Davis Elementary School are attending class in the Eastridge wing of Carey Junior High School while their school on Yellowstone is being rebuilt, but authorities say drivers still need to slow down in their neighborhood.
While Davis is being renovated, Laramie County School District 1 Superintendent John Lyttle says the location is still being used as a centralized bus stop for children to get to Carey Junior High, meaning over 300 children converge there every day.
Since the Davis students are being bused to another school, their bus schedules run earlier at the start of the day and later at the end of the day. That means the flashing yellow lights are on longer than usual in the Davis school zone.
The Cheyenne Police Department says they are enforcing the school zone near Davis and that drivers need to be prepared to reduce their speed and yield to pedestrians at crosswalks.
