Safety Guidelines

Parent and Guardians

We all want our children to be safe while riding on a school bus. Whether your child rides the bus to and from school, or participates in school field trips. One time or another, your child/children will be riding a school bus. Our school has compiled a list of safety tips for you to review with your child/children to enhance their awareness of safe behavior while riding on a school bus. Please take some time and talk to your child/children about these valuable safety guidelines.

  • Arrive at the bus stop at least five (5) minutes before the bus arrives.
  • Stay out of the street & stand back from the curb while waiting for the bus.
  • Do not shout or distract the bus driver.
  • Wait until the bus comes to a complete stop before exiting or entering.
  • Always cross the street at least ten (10) feet in front of the bus.
