The Katy Independent School District released the following statement:
“Katy ISD would like to take this time to remind all parents and students to be mindful of school zones, and to keep an eye out for children when driving past campuses and neighborhood bus stops. This is also a good time for parents to remind their children about safety precautions at bus stops and while walking to and from school. We ask our community to join the District in keeping our students safe.”
