|School Bus Behavior
Your school district probably has a school bus behavior policy. Your bus driver's number one interest is your safety. He or she will ask you to be on your best behavior.
Do not jump up and down, fight or tease other passengers or make a lot of noise. These activities can bother your bus driver and he or she will not be able to give proper attention to driving.
These behaviors can bother any driver, including your family or a friend's family, and make it hard to drive safely.
|Clothing can get caught
Jacket and sweatshirt drawstrings, backpack straps, scarves and loose clothing may get caught on the bus handrail or door. This is not only a danger while getting on or off the bus, but could happen any place on the bus.
If you usually take the school bus and sometimes need to take public transportation, there are some important differences you should know about. See the Public Transportation Safety Kids Page.
