Back- to-School Safety Reminder

Ensure children make it home safe every night with a few simple safety tips for riding the bus:

• Have a safe place to wait for your bus, away from traffic and the street.

• Stay away from the bus until it comes to a complete stop and the driver signals you to enter.

• When being dropped off, exit the bus and walk ten giant steps away from the bus. Keep a safe distance between you and the bus. Also, remember that the bus driver can see you best when you are back away from the bus.

• Use the handrail to enter and exit the bus.

• Stay away from the bus until the driver gives his/her signal that it’s OK to approach.

• Be aware of the street traffic around you. Drivers are required to follow certain rules of the road concerning school buses, however, not all do. Protect yourself and watch out!

The US National Safety Council has additional helpful safety information available on the World Wide Web and the law enforcement officers in Oneida County urge people to explore the various safety areas of this web site at http://www.nsc.org
