Bus Stop Safety

HOW PARENTS CAN HELP IMPROVE BUS STOP SAFETY

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.
