On Monday, August 7, Mesquite police officers, firefighters, and members of the City Council helped welcome Mesquite ISD students back to school for the 2023-24 school year.
Mayor Daniel Alemán, Jr., and all the Councilmembers send best wishes to all students, teachers, administrators and school staff for a wonderful school year.
For the big day, Mesquite Fire Department had fire engines parked near several schools and displayed “Please Slow Down, School Back In Session” banners. During the first week of classes, Mesquite Police Department personnel will be at many schools to support students and their families.
Now that school has started, the City is reminding everyone to pay attention in school zones and crosswalks. No texting while driving, no cell phone usage in crosswalks, watch for children when driving near schools, stop for school buses and “Drive Like Your Family Lives Here.”
