School Bus Safety Tips For Parents

School Bus Safety Tips For Parents

Most school bus fatalities occur when children are outside the bus, and 75% of these fatalities
involve children under the age of nine.

Make sure your children know and follow these rules.
  1. Be on time.
  2. Never run to or from the bus.
  3. Stand back from the curb.
  4. Don’t push or shove.
  5. Stay in your seat.
  6. Don’t yell or shout.
  7. Always obey the driver.
  8. Wait for the driver’s signal before crossing.
  9. Always cross at least 10 feet in front of the bus.
  10. Never crawl under a school bus.
Meet the bus.

Coordinate with other parents to ensure an adult is present at the bus stop every day, especially when children under the age of nine are present.

Remove drawstrings.

Clothing your children like may not always be safe. Drawstrings can catch in playground equipment, fences, school bus doors, and escalators. Remove, shorten or replace drawstrings with another kind of fastener.
