You may call during non-working hours and leave a message on our voice mail. Thank you! Each day, school buses take millions of children safely from home to school and back again. Although school buses are the safest way for children to get to school, it is important to teach children how to do so safely–especially when they're approaching or leaving the bus. That's when children are in the greatest danger. If you can, walk your child to the bus stop on the first day or two of school. Point out where it's safe to walk and stand. Teach your child these rules about school bus safety: Allow plenty of time to get to the bus stop. Children who are late may be tempted to run into a busy street. Wait in a safe place away from the traffic. Sometimes, children play games while they wait for the bus. They should be sure these games never involve running near the street. When the bus arrives, get in a line and wait your turn. Children who push and shove to be first on the bus can get hurt. Follow the bus driver's rules. Children should be taught to respect bus drivers as they do teachers and other school staff members. Don't stick hands, heads or objects out the school bus window. When the bus gets to school, don't push and shove to be the first one off the bus. Never walk behind the bus. Walk at least three "giant steps" (6 feet) away from the side of the bus. Tell the bus driver before picking up something that’s been dropped near the bus. Drivers can't always see children, let alone crouching children. Wait until the driver says it's safe before getting off the bus. Before crossing in front of the bus, take at least five "giant steps" (about 10 feet).Your child should be able to see the driver's face. Then the bus driver will also be able to see your child.
