Starting school is always an exciting time for Lake Hamilton students and their families. While academic achievement is always a top priority, our number one priority at Lake Hamilton is student safety.  Lake Hamilton is proud to support the Flashing Red. Kids Ahead. school bus safety campaign, which begins its sixth year.  

Educators, parents, school bus drivers and community members are encouraged to remind all motorists to obey all traffic laws whenever they are near a school bus.

Also, motorists are reminded that it is illegal to pass a stopped school bus whenever its red lights are flashing, as students are present. The fines, penalties and punishment for anyone found guilty of illegally passing a stopped school bus were increased dramatically by Act 2128 of 2005, also known as Isaac’s Law. 

There will be approximately 7,130 school buses for the 2018-19 school year in Arkansas with approximately 350,000 students on them.  

Remember: Flashing Red. Kids Ahead.
