Many kids are enjoying summer activities across the Tri-States, but some are still in the classroom for the summer.

Summer classes are in session at Rooney Elementary and Quincy Senior High School, according to Quincy Public Schools Superintendent Roy Webb.

Quincy Police is reminding drivers to obey school speed limit signs posted at designated summer school locations.

The speed limit is 20 miles-per-hour from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“The laws are in place to keep people safe, not only the kids but the drivers, so drivers just try to limit your distractions, know where the schools zones are,” Officer Kelly VanderMaiden said.

Superintendent Roy Webb says safety is a top priority.

“It’s very important to us, the safety of students it’s our number one priority during summer school,” Webb said.

According to the Adams County Circuit Clerk, if a driver is caught speeding in a school zone, you could end up paying a total of around $476 in fines and an appearance in court.

Quincy Police add with more people out on the roads to due to warmer weather, it is important to remind children to pay attention when approaching cross walks on the street.
