Back to School: 9 steps to success for safe student transportation

TAHOE-TRUCKEE, Calif. — Your support is needed to ensure your child’s safety. Tips for success in student transportation include:

1: Pack all items in your backpack so both hands are free to hold the arm rail.

2: Stand 12 feet away from the bus and wait for the doors to open before approaching.

3: Students who need to cross the roadway to and from the bus must be escorted by the bus driver.

4: Scan bus pass when entering and exiting the school bus.

5: Go to your assigned seat, fasten seat belt and remain seated to be as safe as possible.

6: Only carry school materials that fit in the seat with you or on your lap. Please no box sized projects.

7: Respect personal space of others and keep hands and feet to oneself.

8: Be friendly to your bus driver and say hello and good bye!

9: Please keep all four-legged friends on a leash at the bus stop.
