    Is there anyone that can be contacted about the School Zone lights at St. Theresa's? It seems that they are not being managed and are on even when school is closed, such as today. This has been the case every day that schools have been closed this year. It would not be a problem if everyone obeyed them but there apparently are those that think they do not need to obey them just because school is closed.

    So is your concern/complaint that the lights are flashing when school isn't even in that day or that people aren't obeying the flashing lights when school is out?

    It's a little bit of both. But mostly what is the law regarding school zones when school is not in session but the lights for school zone are flashing?

    If they're flashing, obey the sign - regardless of whether or not school is open/closed. Other cars not obeying? Outside of your control.

    That's what I have been doing but I would really like to know why those remain active on days when school is closed and the public schools do not.

    I guess the warning lights are not connected to WTOP for the up to date school closing information. If not for the weather, Monday was a school day.

    The lights are controlled by St. Theresas. You will have to contact them to address any issues.

    It's not just St. Theresas. The lights flash at the new Trailside Middle School when school is not in session either.
