Bus Stop Safety Reminders

busstopsafetyIt’s important to remind our students that when they are waiting at the bus stop, they should wait with someone and not be alone. As they are walking home from the bus stop, we encourage them to walk in groups so they are not alone. Students should never get into a car with someone they don’t know and they should always report any suspicious activity to an adult.  We want to keep our students safe and are asking for your help in talking with your children about these important bus stop safety reminders.
