School buses are back on the road! Does your child take the school bus?
Teach your children these tips and rules of behavior to keep them safe during pickup and delivery:
Your child should arrive at the bus stop at least five minutes before the scheduled arrival time of the bus. Visit the bus stop and show your child where to wait for the bus, at least five steps from the curb. Remind your child that the bus stop is not a place to run or play.
Be considerate of the property owner wherever the bus stop is located.
Children should always wait until the bus comes to a complete stop and the bus driver signals for them to board.
Your child should never walk behind a school bus. If your child must cross the street in front of the bus, have them walk down the sidewalk or along the side of the street to a spot at least five giant steps (10 feet) in front of the bus and make eye contact with the driver and wait for the signal to cross.
If your child drops something near the school bus, like a ball or a book, it’s safest to tell the bus driver right away. Your child should not try to pick up the item, because the driver may not be able to see it.
Students are not to push or push to get on or off the bus.
After finding a seat on the bus, children should face forward.
Students must wear the seat belts provided. Parents should teach young children how to do this on their own.
Exit the bus after it stops and look to the left, right, or left for cars before crossing a street.
