It's "Back to School" time. School buses are back on the roads, and students are walking along the side of the road and waiting for buses. Please watch carefully for children near school buildings, in areas where school buses are traveling or where there are signs for school zones or bus stops. Remind your students to listen to the bus driver, follow the bus rules and safe crossing procedures.
Parents and Students – PLEASE Use crosswalks and sidewalks! DO NOT WALK between the buses. For the safety of ALL students, parents are reminded to use authorized “drop off” and “pick up” locations.
Remember that if you are approaching a school bus from either the front or behind, and it's yellow lights are flashing, the bus is preparing to stop.
If the buses red lights are flashing, YOU MUST STOP. It's the law! This includes school buses that are:
• on the opposite sides of divided highways
• on multiple lane roadways
• in parking lots
• on school grounds.
NOTE: The only exception to this law is if the bus driver or a police officer signals that you may pass the bus. Copyright 2003, NYS DMV, Office of Internet Services
