Back to School: School Bus Safety for Children

As children head back to school, here are some school bus safety tips:

  • Look before getting off the bus to make sure no vehicles are passing
  • Before crossing the street, make sure you are far enough in front of the bus to wave goodbye to the driver – if you can see his face, he can see you
  • Make sure children’s clothing and accessories have no hanging straps. These could get stuck in the bus door
  • Bullying is common on school buses. Encourage children to notify an adult if a child is being bullied
