Student safety is the primary concern of the Transportation Department. Statistics show that the most dangerous time for a student riding the school bus is the loading and unloading process. It is critical that students are visible to the driver and out of the bus danger zones when the bus is in motion. This rule applies to loading and unloading both at homes/neighborhoods and at schools. If students are crossing the street, they should move immediately out of the danger zone and proceed at least 15 feet in front of the bus before crossing the street.
NOTE: Students dropped off at their homes must not go to the mailboxes until after the bus leaves.
