Fresno police are reminding drivers that schools will be back in session and traffic cops will be enforcing the laws around school zones for the department’s “No Recess for Safety” program.
Starting Wednesday, uniformed traffic officers will be monitoring school zones in Central Unified School District.
“These officers will be aggressively enforcing all school-related traffic violations,” the department said in a statement.

Monday, Fresno Unified schools will open their doors, so enforcement will take place near all elementary, middle and high schools, of which there are more than 90.
Starting Aug. 21, Clovis Unified schools will open, and Fresno police will monitor school zones around that district’s schools in the city limits of Fresno.
School zone speed limits are 25 miles per hour while children are present. Drivers should keep an eye out for crossing guards and children walking to and from school, police said.
A roadway paving project on Bullard Avenue near Bullard High School has been completed with the exception of a 300-foot stretch between Blackstone and Glenn, said city spokesman Mark Standriff. “The only work remaining is the final restriping and cutting in some of the traffic signal loop detectors,” he said Tuesday.
Standriff did not anticipate any other roadwork problems at any other Fresno schools.
