Flashing yellow lights at schools must be obeyed

Flashing yellow lights in school zones must be obeyed even when schools are closed.

Although school ended Tuesday, lights will continue to operate at most locations for about a week. Flashing lights at summer school sites will be adjusted to reflect the schools’ operating times.

Lunch prices rising 10 cents for 2013-14 academic year

School lunches will cost a dime more for 2013-14 academic year because of federal rules governing how much school divisions are reimbursed by the free- and reduced-price lunch program.

The new lunch prices will be $2.35 for elementary school, $2.50 for middle school and $2.60 for high school.
