“Be Seen, Be Safe“
As daylight hours shorten, please be sure students walking to and from or waiting at their school vehicle stops remain visible. They should also stand a safe distance from the driven portion of the road.
The Ontario Ministry of Transportation identifies the following tips for waiting for the school vehicle ‘The Safe Way’:
Wait for the bus at a safe place away from the road.
Wait for the bus to stop before approaching to get on.
Remember, if you can touch the bus, YOU ARE TOO CLOSE!
