Safety Tips

For a safe and pleasant ride to school and from school, follow these simple rules:

  1. Cooperate with the driver; your safety depends on it.
  2. Be on time; the bus will not wait.
  3. Cross the road cautiously under the direction of the driver when boarding and leaving the bus.
  4. Follow the driver's instructions when loading and unloading.
  5. Remain quiet enough not to distract the driver.
  6. Have written permission and be authorized by the principal to get on or off at a stop other than the designated stop.
  7. Remain seated at all times when the bus is in motion.
  8. Keep arms, head or other objects inside the bus at all times.
  9. Refrain from throwing objects in the bus or out of the windows or doors.  Use emergency exits only for emergencies, and when instructed to do so.
  10. Refrain from eating or drinking on the bus.
  11. Avoid the use or possession of tobacco, matches, cigarette lighters, obscene materials, weapons, drugs, or other prohibited items on the bus.
  12. Take no glass objects or other objects on the bus, if prohibited by state, federal, or other local school board policies.
  13. Take no band instruments, projects and other projects too large or too hazardous to be held by the passenger or stowed safely under the seat.
  14. Refrain from damaging the bus in any way.
  15. Be courteous and safety-conscious.
  16. Protect your personal riding privilege, and enjoy the ride.
