BACK TO SCHOOL SAFETY TIPS
FREDERICK, MD – As summer is coming to a close and another new school year is just about to begin, the Frederick Police Department would like to remind drivers, parents, and students of some important safety tips.
Crossing Guard Locations

Paying attention to these safety tips and obeying all state regulations will go a long way toward ensuring the safety of our children and others in and around the school environment.
