It's Back to School for EVSC students Wednesday morning.

Law enforcement is reminding drivers to be extra careful on the roads.  

Almost 23,000 students are enrolled this year in the 37 schools of EVSC that will be starting class Wednesday morning.  

That means tens of thousands of kids and about 250 buses will be out Wednesday morning.

For that reason, Evansville Police officers are reminding drivers to be alert and watch out for those buses.

Pay attention to flashing lights, stop when the stop arm is out reduce your speeds, especially in school zones.

In fact both EPD officers and the Vanderburgh County deputies will be stepping up their presence around school zones.

And a reminder, East Gibson and South Gibson are also starting today.
