Winter Preparedness

Winter Weather Preparedness for Schools

Children can be especially susceptible to the dangers associated with winter weather.  Their youthful enthusiasm often takes over when common sense and safety should prevail.  Parents should stay informed of winter weather and school closings by listening to daily reports on local radio or television stations.
Parents please review the following winter safety tips with your children who walk to and from bus stops or school.

  • Dress appropriately for cold weather:  sweaters, pants, winter coats, hats, scarves, socks and boots.
  • When you bundle up, keep your line of vision open to look out for traffic and other hazards
  • Allow extra travel time to get to the bus stop or school
  • Wear bright jackets or coats so bus drivers can easily see you in the morning or evening
  • Stand at least 10 steps away (or back) from bus stops.  Buses need extra room to stop - you could fall and slip into the roadway and be at risk of being struck by a vehicle
  • Do not cross the street at your bus stop until all traffic has come to a complete stop and the bus driver has signaled that it is safe to cross.
