Our students’ safety is our first priority. There have been several incidents over the past couple of weeks that has put our students safety at risk. Some vehicles are passing the bus in the parking lot when it is loading or unloading children.
If a school bus or a school pupil transport vehicle has its lights flashing and a stop sign extended, you must stop. It is the law. It does not matter which side of the road you are traveling on. Remain stopped until the lights stop flashing or the stop sign folds back. The only exception to this law is if a school bus has stopped on the other side of a divided highway with a barrier between travel directions. In this case, you do not have to stop.
