HEBRON, Conn. (AP) – New driveway signs and speed bumps are in place at RHAM Middle School in Hebron as students return to school, in response to an accident that killed a teacher.
The new school year began Wednesday in the regional district for Hebron, Andover and Marlborough and at other districts across the state.
RHAM officials had new street signs, speed bumps and barriers installed over the summer as part of a series of changes to make traffic patterns and the student drop-off area safer.
A middle school parent dropping her son off in March accidentally drove into a bus-only area and struck math teacher Dawn Mallory while backing up.
The 65-year-old Mallory died two weeks later.
The parent is facing charges including felony misconduct with a motor vehicle and unsafe backing.
