Help protect your children by teaching them about bus safety and expected behavior. It's important for kids to understand that the bus ride to and from school is not another recess period. In fact, many of the same classroom rules apply on the bus - stay in your seat, keep your hands and feet to yourself, treat others as you wish to be treated and don't disrupt the class or in this case distract the driver.
These rules have been posted in all school buses:
1) Observe the same conduct as in the classroom.
2) Be courteous, us no profane language.
3) Do not eat or drink on the bus.
4) Keep the bus clean.
5) Cooperate with the driver.
6) Do not smoke.
7) Do not be destructive.
8) Stay in your seat.
9) Keep head, hands and feet inside the bus.
10) Bus driver is authorized to assign seats.
