Middle School wins national FBI Internet award

Middle School wins national FBI Internet award

Del Webb Middle School in Henderson is the first middle school in the county to win a national FBI award. The school's 6th grade class won the agency's Safe Online Surfing award for January. The award goes to a class that scores the most points on a test about internet safety.

The 6th grade class outscored more than 1,200 other students from around the country. Del Webb is the second school in the state and the first in Clark County to acheive the coveted award. The monthly quiz is based on the FBI's online safety course which teaches kids how to protect themselves while online.

The official award ceremony will take place Thursday, March 17th at Del Webb Middle School in Henderson.

City to replace 500 school zone signs

City to replace 500 school zone signs

The City of Henderson plans to replace 500 school zone speed limit signs this month, asking drivers to observe posted limits when children are present instead of during specific times. 

Work to change out the signs will begin at Taylor Elementary School, Brown Middle School and Basic High School in the east of Henderson and then continue to the west. The project is anticipated to be completed by December.

Research data indicates motorists drive slower through school zones marked by “When Children Are Present” signs, resulting in increased pedestrian safety in school zones. The change in signage will also match other jurisdictions, so that motorists will see uniformity in school zone speed limit signage across the valley.

"Fostering a safe community is one of our goals in Henderson," Mayor Andy Hafen said.
