First day after summer’s last holiday weekend, and the weather is certainly fall-ish. While tomorrow is the biggest back-to-school day, some start this morning:
WHO’S BACK TO SCHOOL TODAY: Some independent schools start the new year today, including Holy Rosary (noon dismissal), Hope Lutheran, Our Lady of Guadalupe. *Added* And via Twitter, @SudsyMaggie reminds us that Vashon Island schools are back today too – some WS kids commute to them via the Fauntleroy ferry.
REMINDER – NEW SPEEDING-TICKET CAMERAS ON ROXBURY: When you see flashing school-zone lights on Roxbury this week, that also will mean the new speeding-ticket cameras by Holy Family (20th/Roxbury) and Roxhill Elementary (30th/Roxbury) are in operation. (Added: HF zone is in effect today – Roxhill, not until tomorrow:)
The city has said the first month’s tickets will be warnings, and then in October, the grace period’s over.
