Safety Guidelines:

At Your Bus Stop

  • Do not play in the street or in your neighbor’s yard.
  • Be at the bus stop on time. This means being outside TEN minutes before the bus arrives.
  • Wait for the bus in a single-file line. Do not push one another.
  • Never talk to strangers. If you are approached by a stranger, call 9-11 and/or run to safety to tell someone.
  • Wear clothes are proper for the weather conditions and bright enough so the drivers can see you.
  • Wait for the bus driver to tell you it’s safe to enter the bus. Whether you are on the right side or the left side of the road, the driver will always give you a hand signal to enter the bus.

Getting On Your Bus

  • Wait for the bus driver to signal you in. On the left side, wait for the hand signal to cross the road. On the right side, wait for the driver to signal you in to enter the bus.
  • Take 10 giant steps in front of the bus before crossing the street so as you are not in the ‘Danger Zone’.
  • Wait until the bus comes to a complete stop.
  • Line up as the bus gets close. At least 10-20 giant steps away from the road.
  • Wait your turn to get on the bus. There are plenty of seats for everyone.
  • Use the handrail to get on the bus so you don’t fall.

On Your Bus

  • Stay in your seat.
  • Face the front of the bus.
  • Keep your hands and feet out of the aisle.
  • Keep your book bag and belongings in your lap.
  • Do not throw things in the school bus or out of the bus windows.
  • Wait for the bus to stop before standing.
  • Listen to the bus driver.
