School Bus Safety

School Bus

Summer is almost over and the school year will be starting soon.  In Rockland County NY we're lucky to have universal bus-sing for our school children.  That means that every school age child is entitled to be bussed to school irrespective of where they live in proximity to the school.  The buses will be out there in full force and we're all concerned for the safety of our kids who will be out there walking to their bus stops or waiting for them to come.

Now might be a great time to review some of the Ramapo Central Shool Districts Bus Safety Rules with your children:

Bus Safety Rules:

  • Arrive at your bus stop at least five minutes before the bus is due and wait for the bus well off the roadway.
  • Enter the bus in single file and in an orderly manner. No pushing.
  • Sit down promptly and fasten your seat belt and remain in your seat while on the bus.
  • Keep aisles clear at all times.
  • Remain quiet and orderly. No yelling or fighting.
  • Be courteous to your driver and fellow passengers.
  • No eating, drinking or smoking on the bus.
  • Do not open windows without permission.
  • When leaving the bus, if you must cross, always cross in front of the bus. Always wait for the driver's signal to cross.Backpack
  • Backpacks, coats, jackets and sweaters should be worn instead of carried when exiting the bus.

To ensure the safety of our children, lets make sure to watch out for them near school buildings and near bus stops.  Remember too that when the red lights on buses are flashing, to STOP. It's the law!

Leah, I love your school bus.  One could take your post, print it and send it out to clients as a little "tickler".  Great ideas!

Lawrence - thanks for stopping by.

Hosai - We're lucky to have bussing for our kids.   I don't think I would have made it thru 12 years of school with mine if I had to do constant carpools.

Suzanne - Now that's an idea!

Good idea for all bus riders to know what is expected of them and what is safe.

This is a great list, Leah. Our schools opened Monday; yesterday I watched a car barrel through the school zone at about 40 mph. Looked at the rest of us doing 15 like we were crazy.

Good school bus tips that parents need to go over with their kids, especially younger children.

Anne - Now if we could only get all the kids riding the buses to adhere to the rules....

Judi - Safety first!

Toni - How much sooner do they think they'll make it to their destination by zooming?  It only takes one accident to sensitize those drivers and knock some sense into them.

Anita - It's a great refresher for all but most especially for those first starting school.

Debbie, It's not just for the preschoolers.  Bus drivers and teens and bus monitor personnel.
