This program is about safety rules to help keep children out of harm's way. Topics such as
traffic safety are covered in a fun and entertaining manner that insures each lesson will "stick".
We also offer a Halloween safety program that covers important issues
such as "dress bright at night" and "travel in groups". We really emphasize to never eat any of the candy until it's been
checked by an adult. This program reinforces many of the things you'll be talking about in the classroom.
We cover basic safety rules as well rules specifc to schools
When you are waiting for the school bus, you should wait at the bus stop, and stand well
back from the curb.
When you get off the bus:
- Look to the rear of the bus before you step off the bottom step. Our friends at the Pupil Transportation Safety Institute
tell us that more and more motorists are passing stopped school buses on the right shoulder - where the door is.
- Take (five giant steps) straight out the bus door, and out of the danger zone.
- Make sure you have eye contact with the driver, and wait for the driver to signal you before you cross in front of the
- Never go back for anything you have left on the bus.
- Never bend down near or under the bus.
Walking near school:
- When school is opening in the morning and closing in the afternoon, it is a busy and crowded area.
- There are children being dropped off or picked up by both school buses and parents.
- It is important to look carefully to the left, right and left again if you have to cross the street.
- If you must walk through parked traffic, stop and look carefully before stepping out from between vehicles.
- Remember the danger areas around school buses where the driver can't see you.
- Don't run between parked cars and buses.
- Don't run across the street or through a parking lot trying to catch up with your friends.
