The purpose of this program is to introduce all SWLSB elementary school students to the school bus transportation safety guidelines and to ensure that these young students become safe and confident bus riders.
Safety around school zones!
Many students will soon be crossing the streets, drivers must be very careful and patient on the road and respect road signs. Drivers must be particularly alert in school zones, where traffic is moving slowly. Remember the speed limit in school zones is 30 km/h.
If you wish to drive your children to school, make sure to park your vehicle where parking is permitted. Do not block private driveways, crosswalks or streets and obey flashing lights on buses and stop signs.
To avoid road congestion near schools, you can encourage your children to walk instead of driving them. Keeping children active is beneficial to their health. Trained crossing guards can be found along school routes to help your children cross at intersections to ensure their safety.
