    The summer is coming to a close and another new school year is just beginning. Class is back in session on Wednesday, August 26, and for students this means the excitement of meeting new teachers, making new friends and the opportunity to learn new things. However, for drivers it means more traffic on city roadways.  The City and Great Falls Public Schools (GFPS) would like to remind drivers to be mindful and cautious as more students will be on city streets in the coming weeks. Drivers are reminded not to text or talk on cell phones; to slow down in school zones; to be aware of students; and to always pay attention to school buses.
