Winter Safety Tips

  • At 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.
