School Bus Safety Tips For Students:

  • Be alert to traffic. Check both ways for cars before stepping on or off the bus.

  • Walk in front of the bus; never walk behind the bus to cross the street.

  • While waiting for the bus, stay in a safe place away from the street.

  • Before leaving the sidewalk, look for the flashing red lights.

  • Never go near or under the bus to retrieve something you've dropped.

School Bus Safety Tips For Parents:

  • Have your child ride the school bus to and from school instead of driving or riding with teenage passengers.

  • Get to know your school's transportation director, Scott Hamilton, and your child's bus driver. He or she is a trained professional who sees your child every day.

  • Keep phone numbers handy in case the bus is delayed or in the event of an emergency. Scott Hamilton, transportation director, can be reached at the bus garage at (706) 896-3843.
