BUS ROUTE INFORMATION: Bus Routes 2019-2020

Tips for a Safe Ride:

School buses are the safest way for students to travel, but children also need to do their part to stay alert and aware of their surroundings to prevent injury.  National Safety Council urges parents to teach their children the following safety rules for getting on and off the bus, and for exercising good behavior while riding.

Getting on the Bus:

  • When waiting for the bus, stay away from traffic and avoid behavior that can lead to carelessness
  • Line up away from the street or road as the bus approaches
  • Wait until the bus has stopped, the driver give the thumbs up to cross the road, and the door opens before approaching the bus
  • Use the handrail when boarding

Behavior on the Bus:

  • If seat belts are available on the bus, buckle up (Early Childhood & Special Needs Buses)
  • Don't speak loudly or make loud noises that could distract the driver
  • Stay in your seat
  • Keep your head, arms, hands and all object inside the bus
  • Keep aisles clear of books and bags
  • Get your belongings together before reaching your stop
  • Wait for the bus to stop completely before getting up from your seat

Getting Off the Bus:

  • Use the handrail when exiting
  • If you have to cross in front of the bus, first walk at least 10 feet ahead until you can see the driver
  • Make sure the driver can see you
  • Wait for a signal from the driver before crossing
  • When the driver signals, look left, right, then left again. Walk across the road and keep an eye out for sudden traffic changes
  • If your vision is blocked, move to an area where you can see other drivers and they can see you
  • Do not cross the centerline of the road until the driver signals it is safe
  • Stay away from the rear wheels of the bus at all times

Safety First:

  • Kindergarten and first grade students must have an adult present at the bus stop for drop off.
