THE MAINE ASSOCIATION FOR PUPIL TRANSPORTATION ASKS YOU TO JOIN FORCES TO PROTECT OUR STUDENTS

PARENTS:

  • Dress students in bright, easily seen clothing.
  • Warm clothing is certainly necessary but should not obstruct their vision.
  • Equip students with backpacks or book bags so students do not endanger themselves recovering dropped items.
  • Students should be at the bus stop a few minutes before the bus arrives but not more than five minutes before.
  • Remind students of their responsibility for proper behavior on the bus so that the driver will not be distracted.

STUDENTS:

  • Do not push or shove while getting on or off the bus.
  • Use your book bag to carry all of your belongings.
  • When crossing the road, cross at least ten feet in front of the bus. Wait for the bus driver's signal before crossing the road.
  • Always check for traffic yourself before crossing the road.
  • Walk directly away from the bus when you get off.
  • Never walk alongside the bus or hang onto the bus when it is moving.
  • If you drop something tell an adult.

BUS DRIVERS:

  • Count the students before and after they get off the bus. Double check the side and front crossover mirrors for “all clear” before moving the bus.
  • If distracted by actions on the bus, check the mirrors again before moving the bus.
  • Constantly watch and listen for anyone trying to alert you to a hazard.
  • Report students who are disruptive to school officials.
  • Notify school officials when students do not comply with safety rules.
