Bus Safety

Parental Responsibilities
DID YOU KNOW THAT FASHION CAN BE FATAL ON A SCHOOL BUS?  Parents should choose clothing and book bags which are not loose fitting or have drawstrings or large straps.

Other important safety facts to know as parents are:

* Ensure students are at the bus stop five (5) minutes prior to scheduled arrival of the bus.
* Parents are responsible for the safety and discipline of students while going to and from the bus stop.
* Parents are monetarily responsible for any damage done by their children.
* Discuss proper bus behavior with your children and support the driver when behavior problems occur.
* Transport your children to and from school if bus transportation is denied.
* Provide your child's medical information so the bus drivers are informed in case of an emergency.
* Review with your children the DANGER ZONES of a school bus.

Danger Zone:

1. Avoid the danger zone! Walk ten giant steps beyond the bus bumper before crossing in front of the bus.
2. Stop! Wait for the bus driver's hand signal.
3. Go to the middle of the road to check for traffic in both directions.
4. Proceed to designated "place of safety".
5. Listen! If the bus driver blows the horn - DANGER - check traffic. If ok, look to driver for further instructions.
6. Walk straight across the road - not at an angle.
7. Do not go to a mailbox until the bus has left the stop.
