National School Bus Safety Week is October 16-20, 2017.
If your child rides the bus, please review the following safety procedures with them.
- The driver cannot see you if you are standing closer than 10 feet to the bus
- If an item falls under the bus, tell the driver. Don’t get it yourself.
- While waiting for the bus, stay in a safe place away from the street
- When you get on or off the bus, make sure the bus safety lights are flashing
- Look left, right, left before crossing the street
- Cross in front of the bus when the driver says it is safe to cross the street
- Stay in your seat and sit quietly so the driver is not distracted
Students who walk to school should use sidewalks and walk in safe areas. Bikes can be locked up at bike racks at the school. Scooters can be left inside the building just outside the main office to ensure safety.
If you are driving your child to school, please use the loop by the playground as a drop off in the mornings. Students should not be dropped off in the parking lot in front of the school due to safety reasons. If your child arrives at school after 7:30 am, then your child can be dropped off at the main entrance.
Important information regarding changes in bus passes:
Students must ride the buses they are assigned to. While bus passes can be requested to ride a different bus to another location, passes will only be given for emergency situations. All bus pass requests will be reviewed by Administration.
For families who have supervision / daycare needs, please make personal arrangements ahead of time, since requests for those reasons will not typically be considered emergency situations .
