Students Bus Safety for Students
Be at the bus stop at least 10 minutes before the bus is scheduled to arrive.
When the bus approaches, stand at least 3 giant steps (6 feet) away from the edge of the road, and line up away from the street.
Wait until the bus stops, the door opens, and the driver says that it is okay before stepping on the bus.
When crossing the street in front of the bus, walk on the sidewalk or side of the road to a point at least 5 giant steps (10 feet) ahead of the bus before you cross. Be sure the bus driver can see you, and you can see the driver.
When exiting the bus, be careful that clothing with drawstrings and book bags with straps do not get caught in the handrail or door.
Never walk behind the bus.
Walk at least 3 giant steps away from the side of the bus any time you are walking beside the bus.
If you drop something near or under the bus, tell the bus driver. Never try to pick it up. The driver may not see you and begin to drive away.
