Don’t pass stopped school buses

The average daily number of students transported to school is 623 per day. The average miles driving to transport students is 959 miles per day. This is accomplished with 21 morning and afternoon routes along with four mid-day routes.

Please be reminded that all motorists need to obey the flashing red lights on a stopped school bus, this means STOP your automobile for the safety of the students. During the first 50 days of school, 23 vehicles reportedly passed stopped school buses while picking up or discharging students.

Parents, please take a minute to speak to your child about proper behavior on the school bus, remember the school bus is an extension of the class room and all classroom rules apply. We continue to have a lot of standing and changing seats while the bus is moving. A passenger in a school bus is only properly protected when seated, facing forward, with their feet on the floor.
