Each year, the third week of October is recognized as National School Bus Safety Week, a public education program designed to address the importance of school bus safety. Much of the focus of this week is around promoting school bus safety tips to students, parents, and drivers to reduce the risk of accidents and injuries related to riding the school bus. While buses are considered the safest form of ground transportation because of their size and construction, this week is an important opportunity to reinforce important school bus safety rules to both your school community and your bus drivers.
Many state Departments of Education and/or Departments of Transportation share resources and guidance for school bus safety for students, parents, and drivers. These school bus safety tips for bus drivers are shared on the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation website, and provide some important reminders during School Bus Safety Week.
