The 2019-2020 school year begins in Bethel on Tuesday. This means morning traffic will become heavier again with parents driving kids to the campus and school buses headed through neighborhoods making frequent stops for pickups. With that in mind, Bethel officials wanted to pass along a few reminders to morning commuters. That includes to allow extra time, especially the first week back. Traffic and bus route patterns will become more predictable as everyone settles into their new routines. When the red lights are flashing on the school bus, that means traffic must stop in both directions.
