Saftey Tips For Parents
The clothing your children like may not always be safe.
Drawstrings can catch in playground equipment, fences, school bus doors and escalators.
Remove, shorten or replace drawstrings with another kind of fastener.
Students who use backpacks with wheels are not permitted to roll them up and down the stairs or aisle of the school vehicle. Please have your children carry their backpacks on and off the bus. While in transit, they should be on the student's lap, seat (if there is room) or under the seat. The aisle of the school bus cannot be blocked for safety reasons.
Make Sure Your Children Know and Follow These Rules
Be on time (5-8 minutes early).
Never run to or from the bus.
Stand back from the curb.
Don't push or shove.
Stay in your seat.
Don't yell or shout.
Always obey the driver.
Wait for the driver's signal before crossing.
Always cross at least 10 feet in front of the bus.
Never crawl under a school bus.
Always use the seatbelt.
Meet the Bus
Coordinate with other parents to ensure an adult is present at the bus stop every day, especially when children under the age of nine are present.
If you are in an area closer than 10 feet from the bus, this is a DANGER ZONE.
The most serious danger zones are by the wheels and directly in front of the school bus. Always stay where the bus driver can see you.
