School District No. 83 (North Okanagan-Shuswap)

Safety on the Bus Program

pastedImageA bus Safety Program is presented to all kindergarten and grade 4 classes within SD No. 83 schools in the fall.  This is to introduce our elementary riders to the rules of riding a school bus safely.  The students really enjoy interacting with ‘Buster’ (remote control bus) as he demonstrates the School Bus Safety Rules.
Remember Buster’s Rules:
1. Always obey your bus driver.
2. Get to your bus stop on time.
3. Stay away from the street when waiting for the bus.
4. Don’t damage property or litter.
5. Make sure the bus is stopped before getting on.
6. Line up in single file.
7. Use the handrails to get on and off the bus.

10. Never throw things on the bus.
11. Keep arms and hands inside.
12. Stay in your seat while the bus is moving.
13. Talk quietly and don’t scream or shout.
