School Bus Safety

Parents please review this safety information with your child
School Bus Danger Zone

There are Danger Zones around a stopping school bus.

Keep at least 10 feet away from the front, back and sides of the bus and watch for passing vehicles.  Vehicles are required to stop when a school bus has the stop arm out.  Watch for cars that may not follow the rules.

Remember:  The driver can’t see you if you are in the Danger Zone.

Danger zone around the school busLoading and Unloading

When your child gets on the bus:

  • Hold your child’s hand until the bus stops and the driver opens the door
  • Walk with your child to the bus.
  • The bus aide will help him/her get buckled in the safety vest or car seat.
  • You may be asked to sign your child onto the bus.
  • Step away from the bus so the driver can safely pull away from the bus stop.

When your child gets off the bus:

  • Come to the bus door to meet your child and sign them off the bus.
  • Take three giant steps away from the bus door, and out of the danger zone.
  • Make sure you have eye contact with the bus driver and wait for them to signal you if you must cross in front of the bus.  Children must hold onto an adult’s hand.
  • Never go back for anything that was left on the bus.
  • Never bend down near or under the bus.

Please remember that smoking is not allowed near the school bus.
