School Bus Safety Reminders.  School will be starting for some of our area schools in the next couple weeks.  This is a good time to remind your kids about School Bus Safety.   

Here are tips to keep our children safe at the bus stop: 

 • Have your children put everything they carry in a backpack or school bag.

 • Have them to wear bright, contrasting colors so they will be more easily seen by drivers.

 • Make sure children give themselves plenty of time to arrive at the bus stop.

 • Walk young children to the bus stop or have them walk in groups.

 • Walk on the sidewalk, and if there is no sidewalk, stay out of the street. 

•  Stop and look left, right and then left again if you must cross the street or a driveway. 

• Do not let children play in the street. Playing with toys that could roll into the street is dangerous. 

• If they drop something getting on and off the bus, they should tell the driver and follow the driver’s instructions. 

Yours in Public Safety,

Sheriff Tom Reich
