Keeping Students Safe
Student School Bus Safety
Student safety is the primary concern of the Transportation Department. Statistics show that the most dangerous time for students is before and / or after they are on the bus. The Transportation Department considers the environment and age of the students when placing bus stops. We attempt to place every stop at a location with reasonable safety assurances for students. Parents must assume then responsibility for their students travel back and forth from home to the bus stop.

School Bus Danger Zones
The most dangerous time for a student riding the school bus is the loading and unloading process. It is critical that students are visible to the driver and out of the bus danger zones when the bus is in motion. This rule applies to loading and unloading both in the neighborhoods and schools. If students are crossing the street, they should move immediately out of the danger zone and proceed at least 15 feet in front of the bus before crossing the street.
