Bus Stops

#1  Adults at bus stops keep students safe. Please be there. 
#2  Teach children the basics of crossing the road. Look left, right, then left again. Make sure traffic is stoped before crossing any road or bording a bus. 
#3  Be at the bus stop early. 
#4  Keep all belongins in a bag. Every object must fit in a bag and small enough to sit on your lap or between your feet.  
#5  Wait away from the road. 
#6  Don't approach the bus until the driver waves you and not until you have made sure it's safe. 
#7  Never run after the bus! 
#8  When exiting a bus, stop on the last step and look for cars. Follow all directions of the bus driver.  
#9  WEAR REFLECTIVE CLOTHING! Make sure you can be seen. 
 
 
Adults: FYI, an adult is never allowed on the bus unless invited by the driver. Entering a school bus is tresspassing and against the law. 
 

Riding the bus.

This part is simple. Please train your children to: 
 
#1 Take a seat. 
#2 Stay in the seat.  
#3 Use inside, quiet voices. 
#4 Be kind to one another. 
#5 Keep the bus clean, no litter. 
#6 Keep everything inside the bus, nothing goes out the bus window. 
#7 Pay attention to the route and know when to get off the bus at their designated stop.  
#8 And, most importantly, let the driver focus on the road. Every distraction made to the driver is a threat to safety.  
#9 And, even more importantly, respect the bus driver responsbile for everyone's safety. Teach children to obey authority and the adult in charge.
