School Bus Safety

Bus Safety Rules:

We try to keep our bus rules simple and in line with classroom expectations. This is especially important with younger students, but certainly appropriate guidelines for all passengers.

Inside Voice: Means no hollering or screaming - easier said than done sometimes! Loud noises are distracting to a driver, and often it's difficult to ascertain whether the screaming is in good fun, or because a student is hurt or in trouble. It is not good for the driver to have to take their eyes off the road to investigate!

Stay Safely Seated: This means legs out of the Isle, your bottom in the seat and your body facing forward. Most important to safety is sitting properly in the seat! The seats are designed to protect students in the event of a forward crash. To gain full protection, the passenger must be seated and facing forward. Staying out of the isle aids in safe and efficient travel within the bus for students boarding or disembarking. Elementary students should remove their backpacks and hold them on their lap or place on the floor in front of them.

Hands to Self: Any touching is unacceptable. Punching, hitting, slapping, and horseplay are prohibited. These activities are very distracting to the driver, even when done with playful intent. A driver cannot tell whether a slapping sound is "in fun" or a student being harmed.

Every bus has the decal below displayed on the interior. Please ask your student if they are aware of and following the rules! It is very helpful to have parents reinforcing the same expectations as the bus drivers.
