Safety Rules


Important Safety Rules to Follow

When waiting for the bus:

  • Arrive at your bus stop 10 minutes early.
  • Stay back from the street while waiting for the bus.
  • Respect private property.
  • Watch for the school bus driver to signal you to cross the road to board the bus.
  • Line up in a single file and when the bus comes to a complete stop, board it in an orderly manner.  Remember to use the handrail.

When on the bus:

  • Remain seated when the bus starts to move.
  • Do not change seats.
  • Keep your feet in front of the seat. Bags and books should be kept on your lap.
  • Keep hands, head or any part of the body inside the bus at all times.
  • Do not eat or drink inside the bus due to possible hazards such as choking, spilling your food and allergies.
  • Do not throw any objects.
  • Respect the driver. Speak softly and quietly so the driver can stay alert and concentrate on driving.

When getting off the bus:

  • Whoever is closest to the front should disembark from the bus first.
  • Do not push anyone in front or behind you.
  • Use the handrail on your way out, so you do not fall.
  • Step back from the bus door and the bus wheel then take 10 giant steps ahead of the bus to the front of the crossing arm.
  • Never walk behind the bus.
  • Make sure you can see the bus driver's face, because that means that (s)he can see you too.
  • Walk to the edge of the bus bumper and stop, look both ways and then cross when the bus driver signs with their hand.
  • Never stop, turn back, crawl or reach under the bus if you drop or forget something. Wait until the driver has driven away and ask an adult for assistance
