Classes start for some school districts

Posted: Updated:
TEMPE, Ariz. -

Teachers and students are heading back to class across the valley this week -- time to brush up on math, English, history and biology!

Safety is the main concern as everyone gets back into the swing of things.

The start of the school year means a lot of children are out walking and in Tempe, drivers need to know that police officers are out in force to make sure drivers are following the rules in school zones.

"The thing with some of these kids sometimes is you never know how they're going to react.  There may be one group of friends on one side of the road, a friend darts across the street -- so expect the unexpected is what we tell people and understand there's going to be a lot of kids, a lot parents, a lot of confusion sometimes," said Sgt. Steve Carbajal.

Schools and parents are reminding students to be safe and to cross only in crosswalks and with the supervision of adults. Police are also warning kids to avoid alleyways and to walk in well-populated areas.

Area school district start dates:

Aug. 5: Avondale, Glendale, Phoenix Union, Kyrene

Aug. 6: Tempe

Aug. 7: Mesa, Gilbert, Peoria

Aug. 12: Deer Valley

    Heavy thunderstorms swept through the tri-state on Sunday causing flash floods and lightning strikes that injured 3 people. The three men were struck at Orchard Beach in the Bronx Sunday afternoon and were being treated at a local hospital. Meanwhile, various Labor Day weekend celebrations were interrupted, delayed and even canceled as the U.S. Open tennis tournament had to be postponed and the Electric Zoo musical festival on Randall's Island had to be prematurely shut down.
