Children First: Bus Safety

By Stephanie Stang | 

In the near future we will start to see quite a bit of yellow on the road. That's because the first day of school is right around the corner and many students will be climbing aboard the bus on their way to class.

Transportation directors say students need to wear appropriate shoes and to watch out for a bookbag's lose ends when climbing aboard.

And when inside the bus, students should only move when it's stopped or else they could get hurt. Bus drivers also emphasize the importance for drivers to be careful when a bus is stopping to let students out.
