Winter Weather Safety Tips

Bundle up for the Bus!

Parents should advise their children as to how long they should wait for the bus and what to do if the bus does not come in that time frame. 

  • Dress appropriately for the weather. Wear coats, hats, gloves and boots. Make sure hats or face coverings don’t obstruct vision, and boots can be easily walked in. Try to find outerwear that is bright-colored and reflective for better visibility to drivers.
  • Allow extra time to get to the bus stop. If the sidewalk or street is covered in snow and ice, students will need to walk more slowly to get to their stops.
  • Don’t play rough at the bus stop. Stay off of snow piles and don’t push or shove. Doing so could cause students to fall on the ice and become injured.
  • Cross 10 feet in front of the bus. If it’s snowing, the driver may have more trouble seeing students, so make sure to leave plenty of room.
  • Use the handrail when getting on and off the bus. The steps are likely to be slippery from snowy boots.

Due to the ongoing driver shortage and inclement weather we are advising families to expect delays in transportation.

Remember you can always try and track your child’s bus with the ‘Here Comes The Bus’ app, even the most dependable bus can be delayed for an extended amount of time, particularly during the winter months.
