Back to School - Watch for increased activities

The Harrisburg School District will start the 2022-2023 school year on Monday August 29th. The Harrisburg Police would like to welcome Harrisburg School District students and teachers back to school, and wish them a safe and successful year!

The Harrisburg Police would also like to remind everyone that with the start of the new school year, we expect to see an increase in pedestrian, vehicular, and bus activity. Travelers should be aware of increased activity, especially during morning and afternoon hours. 

Attached are two links provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, providing tips and information about School Bus Safety and Back-To-School Safety:
