The Skippack Fire Company reminds you that schools are back in session. It is important to remember some basic bus safety tips:

Safety Tips for Children:
When you get off the bus, take five giant steps away from the bus, out of the danger zone.
Cross in front of the bus, and make sure you maintain eye contact with the driver.
Never go back for anything.
Never bend down near or under the bus.

Safety Tips for Parents:
Assure your children that you won't get mad if they do not go back onto the bus for a jacket or other personal items they may have left.
Instruct your children to never look for school work they may have dropped under the wheel of a bus.
Encourage your children to sit quietly in their seat and follow the driver's instructions on bus safety.

Safety Tips for Motorists:
Pay attention to the bus's flashing warning lights and mechanical "stop sign arm."
Make a complete stop when the bus's warning lights are flashing, or the stop sign arm comes out. Do not proceed until the arm is lowered and the lights stop flashing.
Lower your driving speed around schools and especially where children are loading and unloading from buses and cars.
Share the road with the yellow bus.
Obey the School Zone speed limit of 15 mph when school is in session and children are present.
