DID YOU KNOW...
There are areas to stay clear of when getting on and off the bus?

Because school buses are so large, there are blind spots around the bus where it can be hard to see small children as they are preparing to board or after exiting a bus. Parents can help bus drivers keep children safe by discussing the danger zones.

Front Danger Zone: It is never safe to walk close to the front of the bus. Children should walk five giant steps ahead of the bus before crossing in front of it.

Side Danger Zone: Children should always stay three giant steps away from the side of the bus.  

Rear Danger Zone: Never walk behind the school bus.

Rear Danger Zone: Walk (don't run) three giant steps away from the bus when exiting the bus. ·        

When the bus approaches, step back from the curb at least three giant steps.
