Safety Message from DeKalb Eastern CSD

Kids

  1. Never cross close to the front of the bus – make sure the driver can see you.
  2. Never pick up anything you drop close to or under the bus – ask the driver what to do.
  3. Never run after a bus or bang on the side.
  4. If you must cross the street in front of the bus, follow the driver’s directions, and stop and look before you cross.
  5. Never run across a street, it’s better to miss the bus than rush and risk being hit by a car.
  6. Stay away from the rear and sides of the bus – always be in a safe place where the driver can see you.

Motoring Public

  1. Never pass a school bus when its stop lights are flashing.
  2. Be extra vigilant around school hours – assume a child might run out at any moment.
  3. Be courteous to school buses, give them room and let them change lanes when they need to.
