Waiting for the Bus:
- Stay a safe distance away from the roadway
- No pushing or horseplay when getting on the bus
- Only walk toward the bus after it makes a complete stop
Crossing in Front of the Bus:
- Walk 10 feet in front of the bus
- Look both directions
- Look at the driver for the signal to cross
- Keep watching the traffic as you cross
- Never stop to pick up anything when crossing
Walking to School:
- If you walk to school, learn and practice the safety rules for pedestrians. Always cross at crosswalks or corner to corner. Obey all traffic lights or crossing guard instructions.
Tips for Parents:
- If your child rides a bus, have them at the bus stop 10 minutes prior to the arrival of the bus. Your child must be at the stop when the bus stops, not in a car or your home.
- Help your child learn and practice the safety rules for walking, bicycling, or riding in a car or bus. Be a good model, especially when you are with our child.
Tips for ALL Motorists:
- Slow down and obey all traffic laws and speed limits.
- Red overhead flashing lights, possibly accompanied by an extended stop arm, tells you the school bus is stopped to load or unload children. State law requires you to stop at least 20 feet from the front or rear of a school bus when red lights are flashing and not proceed until the school bus resumes motion.
- Be alert and ready to stop. Prepare to stop for a school bus when overhead yellow lights are flashing. Drive with caution if you see the yellow hazard warning lights flashing on a moving or stopped bus. Watch for children walking in the street, especially where there are no sidewalks. Watch for children playing and gathering near bus stops.
- Watch for children arriving late for the bus who may dart into the street without looking for traffic. When backing out of a driveway or leaving a garage, watch for children walking or biking to school.
