School Spring Break Requires Extra Caution

“Talking Glass” Audible Stories on Signals AZ made possible by The Fain Signature Group – Celebrating 60 Years of Community Building.


The Dewey-Humboldt School District will be on Spring Break the week of March 9-13, 2020. With support from the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, the Prescott Valley Police Department is focusing on a pedestrian, bicycle, and motor vehicle safety. Fewer school buses transporting students to mean more vehicles, pedestrians, and bicycles on the roadway.

Many areas in Prescott Valley do not have sidewalks or streetlights. The Prescott Valley Police Department recognizes the danger to our students in these areas. We encourage parents to teach children to walk against the flow of traffic. Also, please remind them to be aware of their surroundings and not to be distracted with their cell phones. Lighter-colored clothing, reflective tape, and flashlights are also recommended for quick identification by drivers during nighttime hours. Together, as a community, we can help keep our children safe.


Spring Break also tends to see an increase in car and residential burglaries as well as other mischievous activities. The Prescott Valley Police Department encourages all residents to make sure their homes and vehicles are secure when not occupied. Remove valuable items from plain sight and your vehicles. Take time to document (including photos) make, model, and serial numbers of valuable items. Most criminal activity is based on opportunity. Remove the opportunity and minimize crime.


Safety and Protection is the theme for police officers during Spring Break. If you see anything suspicious, contact the police department.
