 "Every year, approximately 440,000 public school buses travel more than 4 billion miles and daily transport 24 million children to and from schools and school-related activities.  School buses account for an estimated 10 billion student trips each year.
By all measures, school buses are the safest motor vehicles on the highways."

Young children are NOT small adults!
  • They often act before thinking and may not do what parents or drivers expect.
  • They assume that if they see the driver, the driver sees them.
  • They can't judge speed and they think cars can stop instantly.
  • They are shorter than adults and can't see over cars, bushes, and other objects.

All of our students arrive at our school in one of four modes of transportation.  Whether they arrive by bus, car, bike, or walking, the school system is committed to keeping students safe as they access school property.  Cars are not allowed in the bus circle during drop off and pick up of students. Children who walk are reminded to use the appropriate sidewalks.
 
Parents can also assist the school in assuring the safe arrival of students by reviewing safety guidelines with all their children, driving slowly on school property, and obeying all the safety guidelines set by the school system.
