Arrive at bus stop 5-10 minutes early.
At bus stops, wait away from the road. Never sit on the roadway or curb while waiting for your bus.
Make sure your student knows their bus driver’s name and bus number.
Students should never walk behind a bus and should stay away from bus wheels at all times. When the bus stops, students should wait for the driver’s signal that it is safe to cross the road or board the bus.
Students should look both ways before crossing the street- look left, right and left again. Tell them to make eye contact to make sure the bus driver can see them as they cross the street.
On the bus, students should remain seated at all times and keep the aisle clear. Tell students not to put their head, hands or arms out the window.
Remind students to stop talking and remain silent when the bus comes to a railroad crossing so the driver can hear if a train is approaching.
Students should avoid any loud or disruptive behavior that could distract the bus driver from safely operating the bus.
