The school year is approaching with full steam ahead, and we have important school bus safety tips from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to share with you to help keep your trainees safe as they head back to class! As you know, the ‘Think Safe, Ride Safe, Be Safe!’ traffic safety campaign aims to provide families with safety and transportation guidance across the nation, including tips for both parents and children on school bus safety. While riding on a school bus is the safest way for your child to travel to and from school, it’s important to teach your trainee about the safety measures that should be taken when waiting, boarding and exiting the school bus. Be sure to share the following tips with your trainees so that they are well prepared to ride the school bus this fall!
· Children should wait five giant steps away from the road when waiting for the school bus
· Once on the school bus, children should go directly to their seat and sit down facing forward
· Children should remain in their seat facing forward when the school bus is moving
· Children should look out for cars before getting off the school bus, and always wait for the driver to signal it is safe to cross
