Winter Months Precautions

During the winter months the transportation department would like to remind the community at-large of the importance of winter safety for students who ride the bus.

Parents, please discuss the following with your students:

  • Dress appropriately for cold, icy weather.
  • Allow extra time to get to your bus stop.
  • Stand away from where the bus stops. Buses need extra room when there is ice and snow on the roadway.
  • Use the handrails when boarding or exiting the bus to prevent slipping.
  • Do not stand or play on snow piles at the bus stop.
  • Do not throw snowballs at the bus or at anyone.
  • Never try to retrieve an item that falls around or underneath the bus.
  • Instead, always report such an incident to the bus driver.
  • Never chase after the bus or attempt to grab the back bumper.
