Safety Message from WCSD

KIDS

  1. Never cross close to the front of the bus - make sure the driver can see you.
  2. Never pick up anything you drop close to or under the bus - ask the driver what to do.
  3. If you must cross the street in front of the bus, follow the driver's directions. The, stop and look before you cross.
  4. Never run across the street. It's better to miss the bus than rush and risk being injured.

Stay away from the rear and sides of the bus - always be in a safe place were the driver can see you.

Motoring Public

  1. Never pass a school bus when the stop light sequence (yellow lights or red) has begun.
  2. Be extra vigilant around school hours - assume a child might run out at any moment.
  3. Be courteous to school buses, give them room, and let them change lanes when necessary.
  4. Be aware that buses make very wide turns and require extra turning space.
