PSA - Scott's Law - Move Over Law

Parents, Students and Staff,

Too many Illinois State Troopers have been put in danger or lost their lives by drivers not following the law. The Illinois State Board of Education and the Illinois State Police are working together to ensure all teen drivers and their parents and families have the information they need to protect those who protect us. Scott’s Law, also known as the Move Over Law, was named after Lieutenant Scott Gillen of the Chicago Fire Department who was struck and killed by an intoxicated driver while assisting at a crash on the Dan Ryan Expressway. Scott’s Law mandates that upon approaching any stationary vehicle with flashing emergency lights, including commercial trucks and cars, all approaching vehicles shall:

  • reduce speed
  • change lanes if possible; and
  • proceed with caution.

Fenton Drama presents Working

Fenton High School is proud to present the spring musical Working on April 25, 26 and 27 in the Lewis-Huffman Auditorium at Fenton. Tickets are $5.00 at the door.

Working is based on the book by Studs Terkel. It is a musical telling the stories of various workers through interviews. Working paints a vivid portrait of the men and women that the world so often takes for granted: the schoolteacher, the phone operator, the waitress, the millworker, the mason and the housewife, just to name a few. Nominated for six Tony Awards, this classic has been updated for a modern age, featuring new songs by Tony Award-winning Lin-Manuel Miranda, as well as favorites by Stephen Schwartz, Craig Carnelia and James Taylor.
