Bus Stop Safety Reminders

For Students:

  • Stay back at least 10 feet from the road while waiting for the bus. Do not play games or run around at the bus stop.
  • When you see the bus coming, form a line—do not rush to the roadway or push others to try to be the first on the bus.
  • If you must cross in front of the bus, look at the driver for directions and cross in front of the crossing gate arm.
  • Never walk behind the bus.
  • Do not try to pick up something dropped near the bus—the bus driver may not see you. Ask the driver first.
  • Have respect for others’ property at the bus stop and on the bus.
For Parents:
  • We strongly recommend that younger students be supervised at the bus stop (coming and going) by a parent or other adult.
  • Do not crowd the bus stop with personal vehicles. This poses a danger by obstructing traffic and blocking drivers’ views.
  • Park all cars legally - 25 feet back from the intersection. Do not park in the wrong direction.
  • Do not block the place that the bus makes its stop. Do not block the driveways of the property owners at the stop. Do not block walkways or mailboxes.
  • Have students in an orderly straight line as the bus approaches.
  • Have the students respect the homeowner’s property at the bus stop.
  • Look carefully before allowing your child to exit your vehicle at the bus stop.
  • Do not pull your vehicle directly behind a bus and release your child to run alongside the bus.
  • Do not “chase” the bus from one stop to another. If your child misses the bus, please take your child directly to school.
  • We strongly recommend that all students be at the assigned bus stop 10 minutes prior to the scheduled bus arrival.
  • Check your child’s clothing to make sure it is safe – long, dangling drawstrings and straps, long scarves, loose clothing and oversized backpacks pose a safety hazard.
