When Does School Begin Again in Twin Falls?

Twin Falls school district begins classes on August 16th. Drivers may encounter flashing lights in advance of the first school day. Any time the flashing lights are flashing, drivers need to follow the posted school zone speed. Any lights that are flashing in advance of official school start dates will assist drivers in recognizing where school zones are and when they are in effect preparing them for the first school day.
