TxDOT offers tips to help keep schoolchildren safe

As millions of Texas children return to school this month, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) reminds motorists and parents to take precautions to prevent traffic crashes and injuries in and around school buses.

Last year, there were 765 traffic crashes in Texas school zones, resulting in 1 death and 15 serious injuries. The most common causes for these crashes were failure to control speed, driver inattention, and failure to yield the right of way, when turning left to a private drive or at a stop sign.

A Word from Wayne

Welcome back students, staff and parents! Summer is now officially over and another school year begins. Today will mark my twentieth first day of school as an educator. At some time today I will have visited every classroom for a “howdy and glad you are here.” It is like Christmas for an educator.

Back-to-School Health Check List

August marks back-toschool season, an ideal time for parents to help improve their children’s health. Before schedules become packed with classes, homework and extracurricular activities, here’s a back-to-school “health checklist” to help give children a better chance to succeed inside and outside the classroom:

Get a Comprehensive Eye Exam

About 80 percent of what children learn is through their eyes. With that in mind, a child’s first comprehensive eye exam should occur before age 1, again at age 3 and before entering school.[1] If no vision issues are detected, school-aged children should have an exam at least once every two years. Also, a school’s vision screening is not a substitute for a comprehensive eye exam, as screenings can miss conditions such as poor eye alignment, focusing issues and farsightedness.

Bowden earns all-star MVP honors, headed to collegiate challenge

Article Image Alt Text

Setting a goal of being MVP of an all-star football game is risky. There are too many uncontrollable variables like playing time and dependence on teammates you’ve never played with.

Summertime all-star games are often sloppy because they occur 7-8 months since most of the players have donned pads and played. Offensive players have just a few days to adjust to their teammates, much less a scheme or any kind of timing or rhythm.
