SCHOOL BUS SAFETY INITIATIVE
APS has partnered with American Traffic Solutions to address the problem of illegal passing of school buses that are stopped and boarding or disembarking children. All buses are now equipped with a camera that automatically detects a vehicle illegally passing in either direction and captures video and images of the violator's license plate.
The violation video and license plate images are reviewed by law enforcement for approval prior to a citation being issued through the court system.
There is a $300 fine for the first violation, a $750 fine for a second violation and a $1,000 fine for a third violation.

Playground Safety at Brandon Primary Center
There was an incident at the Primary Center where a parent was picking up her child after school and was hit in the head by a lacrosse ball. The woman suffered a serious concussion and the incident could have been much more tragic. Hard sports balls such as lacrosse, baseball, golf, etc. are NOT allowed on the Morris Brandon Campus.
