(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Local School Resource Officers are sharing tips on keeping children safe during back to school season. 

As schools in our area start classes, more buses will be on the roads. 

SROs say children should walk to the bus stop in groups if possible, and avoid distracting the bus driver.

For other drivers on the roads, they say to remain extra cautious and be sure to obey all traffic laws around school buses.

"We would like to make sure every kid gets home and to school safely," Leroy Barnes School Resource Officer said.  

SRO's said many kids are starting school for the first time and might be inattentive to what's going on around them.

A weak cold front will move through the area overnight bringing the chance for a few areas of very light rain, but most areas will stay dry. Temperatures will be slightly cooler tomorrow because of the front with highs in the mid to upper 40s. It will be breezy at times tomorrow especially in the morning and afternoon hours with wind gusts up to 30 mph. Mild and fairly quiet weather is on the way for next week with above average temperatures all week. Temperatures will start in the 50s on Monday and warm into the 60s by mid week. Most of next week looks sunny and dry with only a few slim chances for precipitation.
