School Bus Safety
90% of our students ride the bus to and from school. It is important that parents review the following with their children regarding bus safety.
1. When waiting for the school bus, children should not play in the street. Stand at least 15 feet from the road if possible.
2. They should line up facing the bus, not at its side. All their belongings should be packed safely away in their backpacks.
If loose items roll under the bus, then children should not reach under it to get them.
3. If approaching the bus, children should wait for a signal from the driver and walk where they can be seen.
4. When leaving the bus, children should immediately step onto the sidewalk and away from the traffic.
5. Inside the bus, students must sit in their seats at all times, talk quietly, follow driver instructions and keep the aisle clear at all times.
6. Students must ride the bus they are assigned at all times.
