Sheriff Degase and the entire Douglas County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind everyone that with school starting this week, individuals need to allow more drive time to and from work due to school buses being out and about.
Also, be mindful of students walking to and from school, and those passing through crosswalks, as well as entering and exiting buses. Excitement overtakes the smaller students and they often forget to look for cars, so please look out for them.
