East Grand Forks students ride to school in patrol car
Kids in East Grand Forks got a lift to school today -- for their first day.
Four students -- including two little girls at New Heights Elementary -- got to ride in the backseat of a patrol car to class. During their ride -- police talked with the kids about how they can stay safe.
The kids, whose names were drawn from a hat on Monday, Sept. 2, say they had a fun ride to school.
"The officer was really nice," said Aubrey Schuh, a second-grader at the school.
"We just wanted to spread a positive impact and good relations between law enforcement and the children of East Grand Forks," said Officer Felicia Znjada.
One of the girls wants to be an officer when she grows up. Look for what she has to say tonight on WDAY News at 10.
