_1200200 R.jpgAs we approach the end of summer, I would like to remind you that a new school year is about to begin.  Later this month, more than 150,000 Pinellas County students will once again begin making their daily trip to and from school in one of the largest school districts in our state.  Whether traveling by car, bus, bicycle or on foot, students may face some challenges as they make their way to and from school in the coming months.
