    Safety tip reminders for students:

     

    Students riding a school bus should always:

    • Arrive at the bus stop at least five minutes early.
    • Stand at least 5 giant steps (10 feet) away from the edge of the road.
    • Wait until the bus stops, the door opens, and the driver says it’s okay before stepping onto the bus.
    • Be careful that clothing with drawstrings and bookbags with straps or dangling objects do not get caught in the handrail or door when exiting the bus.
    • Check both ways for cars before stepping off the bus.

    Crossing students should:

    • Walk in front of the bus; never walk behind the bus.
    • Walk on the sidewalk or along the side of the road to a point at least 10 giant steps ahead of the bus.
    • Be sure the bus driver can see them, and they can see the bus driver.
    • Wait for the driver’s signal to cross.
