School begins on Thursday: Slow down in school zones

Published on: August 10, 2017


Students will return to school on Thursday, Aug. 10, in both Hillsborough and Manatee counties. The School District of Hillsborough County is the third largest in Florida and the eighth largest in the United States. In South Hillsborough, elementary school start times tend to coincide with the morning rush hour. After the summer break, take a few extra minutes to be aware of children and of school zones and slow down for students. The children — and your wallet — will thank you.
