School Safety Tips

We can all do our part to ensure that students get to and from school safely

  • SLOW DOWN: Look for children waiting at the bus stop, walking or riding their bicycles to school;
  • RED flashing lights and the extended ‘STOP’ arm means traffic (in both directions of a 2 lane roadway) is required to stop until the lights stop flashing and the extended ‘STOP’ arm is withdrawn;
  • YELLOW flashing lights indicate the bus is preparing to stop;
  • Use caution when coming to a bus stop;
  • Follow all school zone speed limits;
  • Look for crossing guards and students in cross walks;
  • Never pass a bus on the outside of a turn.
