Winter Safety Tips

Kids waiting at bus stop

Walking to the Bus Stop:

 

  •  Allow extra time in the morning to get to your bus on time. 
     

  •  Wear bright clothing so the bus driver and other motorist can see you in the early morning and late evening. 
     

  •  Stand away from where the bus stops. Buses need extra room to stop when there is snow  and ice. 
     

  •  Dress properly. Winter clothing, hats, mittens and boots will help keep you warm. 
                                                                                                                                                     

Waiting at the Bus Stop:

  •  Don't play in the snow while waiting for the bus.

  • Don't throw snowballs at the bus or anyone else. 

  • Don't slide on the snow or ice patches in driveways or on the street. You could slide under the wheel of the bus or onto the street and get hurt.

  •  Don't push or shove around the bus. Someone could fall down on the ice and get hurt.
