School crossing lights' timing confuses

Mount Ogden Junior High School is in the Ogden School District area, and yet it seem to run as its own separate school from other schools in the district. For example, other schools in that district are on Spring Break beginning April 4; however, Mount Ogden does not begin Spring Break until April 5.

The school crossing lights for other schools in Ogden District are shut off by 8:40 a.m., or earlier, but those at Mount Ogden are still on even after 9 a.m., yet classes begin at 8:15 there at Mount Ogden. Is the school, the district, and the police department that desperate for funds that those particular crossing lights need to be on long after classes begin so that police can ticket motorist who assume those lights--like other crossing lights at Ogden District schools are off?
