Safety Rules for Riding the Bus

Welcome back!

We are happy and excited to have you on the school bus. Your school bus is a safe and clean place for you to be.

Your bus driver has been working very hard to get ready for you. The driver will sanitize your school bus 2 times a day to ensure there are no germs riding on the bus with you. To help us keep you healthy and safe, we have a few new rules for you this year.

Do not get on the bus if you feel sick. Tell an adult.

Wash your hands with soap and water (or hand sanitize) before and after riding the bus.

Wear your mask at all times while on the bus.

Loading: Wait until the driver waves you onto the bus one at a time.

Listen to your bus driver and use your inside voice.

Only sit in your assigned seat and remain seated at all times.

Keep your hands, feet, objects and negative comments to yourself.

Keep conversations appropriate for all ages, there maybe younger students near you.

Only bring things on the bus that you need for school.

Do not share your belongings with others.

If you bring it on the bus, take it off the bus. Especially Kleenex, masks, garbage etc.

Cover coughs and sneezes with your arm.

Do not eat or drink on the bus.

Unloading: Keep 2 arm lengths back from the student in front of you.

Everyone must do their part to keep each other safe. Riding the bus is a privilege and it is very important that we all follow the rules. Students unable or unwilling to follow the rules will not be allowed to ride the school bus, and their parents will have to provide transportation to school.
