CLIFFSIDE PARK, N.J. — With summer coming to an end and school resuming, AAA reminds drivers to watch out for pedestrians before and after school hours.

In the last 10 years, roughly one in four child pedestrian fatalities occurred between 3 and 7 p.m., according to AAA.

The first day of school for Fairview Public Schools is Wednesday, Sept. 2. Edgewater and Leonia public schools begin Thursday, Sept. 3.

The first day of school for Cliffside Park and Bogota public schools is Tuesday, Sept. 8. Classes start up again at Academy of Our Lady of Grace in Fairview on Wednesday, Sept. 9.
