Important Tips For Parents

Make sure your child knows:

- Their phone number and address

- How to get in touch you at work, or another trusted adult

- How to dial 9-1-1

- Not to talk to strangers or accept rides from someone they don't know

School Bus Safety

If children ride a bus to school, they should:

- Plan to get to their bus stop early

- Stand away from the curb while waiting for the bus to arrive

- Board the bus only after it has come to a complete stop, and the driver or attendant has instructed them to get on.

- Only board their designated bus, and never an alternate one.

- Always stay in clear view of the bus driver and never walk behind the bus.

- Cross the street at the corner, obeying traffic signals and staying in the crosswalk.

- Never dart out into the street, or cross between parked cars.

What Drivers Should Know

Drivers should:

- Be aware that children are out walking or biking to school

- Slow down, especially in residential areas and school zones

- Know that yellow bus signals indicate the bus is getting ready to stop.

- Know that red flashing lights and an extended stop sign indicate the bus is stopped and children are getting on or off.

(NOTE: When bus lights flash red, drivers in both directions must stop their vehicles and wait until the lights go off, the stop sign is back in place and the bus is moving before they can start driving again.)

Additional Tips For Arriving To School Safely

- All passengers in a car should always wear a seat belt.

- Younger children should use car seats or booster seats until the lap-shoulder belt fits properly (typically for children ages 8-12 and over 4'9"), and ride in the back seat until they are at least 13 years old.

- Remind teen drivers not use their cell phone to text or make calls, and should avoid eating or drinking or any other distractions while driving.

- If riding their bike to school, students should always wear a helmet and ride on the right in the same direction as the traffic is going.

- If walking to school, students should only cross the street at an intersection, and use a route along which the school has placed crossing guards.

- Parents should walk young children to school, along with children taking new routes or attending new schools, at least for the first week to ensure they know how to get there safely.

- It is also best to arrange for the kids to walk to school with a friend or classmate.
