HELP US KEEP YOU KIDS SAFE

The start of the new school year is quickly approaching. Please discuss with your child about bus safety and the danger zones as they approach the buses.

  • Never approach the bus when it is moving.

  • Follow ALL directions of the bus driver. 

  • Stay away from the Danger Zones around the bus (the area 10 feet around the bus in all directions). If you can touch the bus, you are too close.

  • Don't try to pick up something dropped near the bus - the bus driver might not see you.

  • Remember that other motorists don't always stop for a stopped school bus - use extreme caution whenever getting on or off the bus.

  • When getting on the bus, go directly to a seat and sit down
SCHOOL BUS SAFETY IS A TEAM EFFORT
NOTHING IS MORE PRECIOUS THAN A CHILD'S LIFE
