Thursday is the first day of classes for district 108 students, and for the fifth year, the Pekin Fire Department set up fire trucks on highly traveled streets.

The goal is to alert drivers that children are present.

The Pekin Fire and Police departments also advise motorists to slow down in school zones and come to a complete stop when buses activate their stop signs.
