Bus and Walker Safety

Here are some tips on how to be safe both walking to and from school as well as riding the bus. We encourage parents to speak with your child(ren) about traffic and bus safety.

Bus Safety
  • Be at the bus stop prior to the pickup time so you are not rushed and your student is ready
  • Wait at the bus stop in a safe place, away from driveways and the street
  • Make sure you make eye contact with the bus driver and wait for them to signal you if you need to pass in front of the bus
  • Do NOT approach the bus until it comes to a complete stop and the driver opens the door
  • Quickly get to a seat and remain seated properly while riding the bus
  • It is important to listen to your bus driver, your safety is important to them
  • Keep your belonging in your school bag and respect othes belongings on the bus
  • Be on your best behavior, talk quietly and keep your hands to yourself, do not distract the driver or others
  • When you get off the bus look both ways before your step down, make sure there are no cars approaching
  • Do not bend down or stop near the bus, the driver cannot see you and needs you to be a safe distance away from the bus
  • Make sure you make eye contact with the bus driver and wait for them to signal you if you need to pass in front of the bus
The Danger Zone
  • There is a 10-foot area around the bus known as the Danger Zone
  • The bus driver is not able to see anything in this area.
  • The Danger Zone is right in front of the bus and the areas all around the rear wheels and the back of the bus

Walker Safety

  • Walkers should cross at the cross walk and look both ways before crossing the street
  • Our crossing guard's name is Wendy, use the crosswalk that she attends in front of the school to cross Court Street
  • The area around the school is very busy and crowded in the morning and afternoon, be aware and always stop, look and be safe
  • Do not run between parked cars or to catch up with friends
