Staying Safe Between Home and School

Important Facts about School Bus Safety



Whenever you see the alternating flashing red lights on a school bus, you must stop if you are on a two-lane roadway...

...or you are on a multiple-lane roadway and you are traveling in the same direction as the bus.



Please remain alert throughout the school year and remember, the inconvenience of an extra few seconds spent waiting for a stopped school bus is insignificant compared to the loss of a child’s life.


As a general rule of thumb, whenever a school bus is stopped in your immediate vicinity, please stop until the flashing red lights have been extinquished.
