Bus Safety Tips

Help us keep your children safe on the school bus!  The following links include useful information for parents and students that will help ensure the safety of the children we transport.  Please take a moment to review this information to help educate our students on the importance of school bus safety!
TEACH YOUR CHILD TO GET ON AND OFF THE BUS SAFELY:
   
  • When getting on the bus, stay away from the danger zone and wait for the driver's signal. Board the bus one at a time.
  • When getting off the bus, look before stepping off the bus to be sure no cars are passing on the shoulder (side of the road). Move away from the bus.
  • Before crossing the street, take five "giant steps" out from the front of the bus, or until the driver's face can be seen.  Wait for the driver to signal that it's safe to cross.
  • Look left-right-left when coming to the edge of the bus to make sure traffic is stopped. Keep watching traffic when crossing.
