Oct. 2 Clearfield-Jefferson ARC Notes

Bus Safety Rules Are For Everyone


Safety at bus stops and on the school bus depends on the cooperation and responsible behavior of every student.

  • Be on time to help keep the bus on schedule.
  • Arrive at the bus stop five minutes ahead of the scheduled bus arrival time.
  • Stand back from the edge of the roadway or on the sidewalk while waiting for the bus.
  • Stay out of the street so you do not become a traffic hazard to people driving past the stop. 
  • Don’t be a litterbug. 
  • Line up three to five feet away from the edge of the road single file. Do not approach the bus until is has stopped moving and the door is open. Wait for the bus driver to signal you to board the bus.
  • If the bus stop is on the opposite side of the street, wait until the bus has stopped and the red light warning system has been activated.  Look both ways before crossing.
  • Board the bus signal file. Use the handrails. Go directly to your seat.
  • Follow the bus driver’s instructions.
  • Remain seated.
  • Do not endanger yourself or others.
  • Do not bring animals, food, beverages, tobacco, chemicals or hazardous objects on the bus.
  • Speak and act courteously.
  • Help to keep your bus clean and safe!

Riding the school bus is a privilege, it is also a chance to talk to your friends and have a good time.  Follow the safety rules and enjoy your ride!
