Back to School

With our kiddos going back to school – let’s make sure they arrive safely no matter how they get there!
Bus:

  • Try to stay at least 6ft away from the curb when the bus is approaching
  • If you must cross the street to get to the bus stop, always look both ways and make eye contact with your bus driver
  • Stay seated while the bus is in motion

Bike:

  • Always ride on the right side of the road and obey all traffic laws
  • Wear a properly fitted helmet – always
  • Be alert of traffic around you

Walking:

  • Walk on the sidewalk if available, if not walk facing the traffic
  • Always use crosswalks and look both ways before crossing
  • Avoid distracted walking – take off headphones & avoid texting

Drop Off:

  • Obey school zone speed limits
  • Avoid distracted driving
  • Make eye contact with children crossing the street
  • Be patient and always let pedestrians go first
