A Note to Parents: School Bus Stop Safety for the End of the School Year

FCS has spent this year teaching students and drivers to develop Safe, Orderly And Respectful (S.O.A.R.) school bus riding habits. As we complete another successful school year, please keep the following in mind if you plan to celebrate/surprise your child at the bus stop:

  • Plan activities away from the school bus and bus stop. Distractions are dangerous to students, bus drivers and motorists.
  • Do not involve the bus or bus driver. The students on the bus need to remain calm and the driver needs to stay focused on their job of keeping all students safe. 
  • Wait until all students are well away from the school bus, out of the bus crossing zone, and the driver has left the bus stop area.

By following these steps, our students, drivers and others will be safe in and around the school bus and bus stop. Thank you for your consideration and we hope you have a wonderful, restful summer with your children.
