School bus rules for parents and children
Parents need to be proactive in helping to teach school bus safety to their children. The Middlesex County School System offers the following tips on school bus safety:
  • Always walk to the bus. Never run.
  • Walk on the sidewalk. If there is no sidewalk, walk on the left facing traffic.
  • Always go to the bus stop 5 minutes before the bus is scheduled to arrive.
  • While at the bus stop, wait in a safe place away from the road. Do not run and play while waiting at the bus stop.
  • Never speak to strangers at the bus stop and never get into the car with a stranger.
  • Always go straight home and tell your parents if a stranger tries to talk to you or pick you up.
  • Wait for the bus to arrive, watch for red flashing lights and stop sign and crossing arm to be extended, and cross only when all traffic has stopped.
  • Look left, right and left again before crossing.
  • While on the bus, the child needs to remain seated, forward facing at all times and keep aisle clear. 
  • The child should not shout while on the bus or distract the driver unnecessarily.
  • The child needs to keep head and arms inside the bus at all times.
  • Parents should make sure that they remove loose drawstrings or ties on their child’s jacket and sweatshirt because they can snag on bus handrails.
  • When boarding or leaving the bus, parents should tell their child to always walk in a single file line and use the handrails to avoid falls.
  • The child should look before stepping into the street to make sure there are no cars passing the bus.
  • The child should cross the street at least 10 feet (or five giant steps) in front of the bus.
  • The child needs to exit from the front of the bus. Never walk behind the bus.
  • The child should ask the bus driver for help if an item is dropped while entering or exiting the bus.
  • A parent must be visibly present when his child is being dropped off in the afternoon if your child is in kindergarten, Pre-K or 1st grade.
  • No littering on the bus or damaging the bus.
  • No eating or drinking on the bus.
  • Throwing objects, fighting, obscene language or gestures are forbidden.
  • No smoking or drugs shall be allowed on the bus.
  • The bus driver is authorized to assign seats.
