DECATUR, AL (WAFF) - The starting times for the first day of school for Decatur City students were staggered, and traffic problems were expected.

Elementary schools now start at 7:45 a.m. and middle and high schools start at 8:30 a.m.

The school district warned parents of traffic delays, as people get adjusted to the new start times, as well as new pick up and drop off locations.

Parents were also advised to be especially careful in school parking lots because some students, especially younger children, won't be paying attention.

They were also reminded to go slow in school zones and stop for buses that are picking up students.
