The parent or a designated adult is to be with the child at the bus stop both in the morning and in the evening.

 

-------------------------------------- 

For the safety of your child it is important for us to know whether to expect him/her on the school bus.  If your child is going to be absent please call the school by 8:20 AM to let the teacher know that he/she will not be at school that day.

 

-----------------------------------------

 

Bus Changes – Please send a note by your child if there is to be a change in the way your child will go home in the afternoon.  Please do not call the school.  If no written notification is received, your child will follow his/her regular method of getting home.

 

--------------------------------------------

Below are the school bus safety rules that your child should know when he/she rides the bus.  Please help your child learn them this summer. Children love to role play so this would be a great time to pretend to ride the bus with your child and help them learn the rules.

 

SAFETY PROCEDURES AT THE BUS STOP

  • Be ready and waiting at the bus stop.
  • Do not wait, play, or run in the road at the bus stop.
  • Stay back from the curb as the bus approaches.
  • Wait till the bus stops completely and opens the door before moving close.

 

SAFETY PROCEDURES FOR ENTERING THE BUS

  • Keep one hand free to use the handrail and take one step at a time.
  • Take your seat quickly and quietly.
  • Don’t push or shove in line.

 

SAFETY PROCEDURES FOR RIDING THE BUS

  • Talk quietly to your friends.  Loud noises distract the driver’s attention from the road and could cause an accident.
  • Don’t throw anything in or out of the bus.
  • Stay in your seat while the bus is moving.
  • Keep head, hands, and arms inside the window.
  • Keep books, lunch box, and backpack in your lap and don’t let them fall, slide or lay in the floor.
  • Never mess with any equipment inside the bus.

 

SAFETY PROCEDURES FOR EXITING THE BUS

  • Get off only at your stop.
  • Do not get out of your seat until the BUS STOPS.
  • If you drop anything near or under the bus, let it stay there until the bus leaves.
  • Do not push or shove getting off.
  • Use the handrail and take one step at a time.
  • Move away from the bus as you get off.
  • If you cross the road, watch for the driver’s signal.
  • Always cross the road in front of the bus.
