Bus Safety Tips

  • Safety precautions are vital before, during and after school. If your child is transported by bus:
  • Walk with him/her to the bus stop if it is a new experience. All students are expected to be at their assigned stops five minutes before the bus is due. The bus CAN NOT wait for you.
  • Talk with him/her about where to stand. Students should stand back from the road in an orderly manner.
  • Bus riders should realize that procedures for movement and seating arrangements are regulated by the driver.
  • Explain to him/her the dangers of crossing a street or intersection. All students who need to cross the road will do so in front of the bus, after it has stopped and the bus driver has motioned you across.
  • Become acquainted with your child’s bus driver.
  • Advocate supervision. Form a group of parents whose children wait together at the bus stop. Parents are responsible for supervising children at bus stops.
  • Students in Kindergarten, grade one and grade two will not be allowed off of the bus unless an adult is at the stop to meet them. Students who are not allowed off the bus will be returned to the school and placed in the Linked Together child care program at parent expense. Parents will be called in this event.
