Ø Please have your child ready and at the bus stop at least five minutes early.
Ø If your child’s not riding that day, a courtesy call is very much appreciated!
Ø Provide your child with a backpack to keep school items safely
inside and reduce the chance of something dropping near or under the bus.
Ø Check your child’s clothing for long drawstrings or other dangerous items that
could get snagged in the bus door or in playground equipment. Long
drawstrings are very dangerous.
Ø Provide brightly colored outerwear for your children whenever possible.
Brightly-colored jackets and jackets with reflective tape make children more
visible in low-light conditions.
Ø Insist on safe behavior at the bus stop - children should wait in an orderly
fashion, safely back from the roadway. They shouldn’t move toward the bus
until it’s come to a full stop and the driver signals it’s safe.
Ø Reinforce safe loading and unloading behaviors – remind your child to wait
for the bus driver’s signal before crossing the street.
Ø Reinforce safe ridership – remind your child to not distract the bus
driver. Driver distraction could cause an accident.
