See you at the bus stop!


* Always drop off and pick up your child at their designated bus stop. Remind your child to always follow their bus driver’s instructions at the bus stop. Children can sometimes get excited to see you after school and dart across the road before the bus driver has given them the hand signal that it’s safe to cross. 

* Sometimes a substitute driver will be on your route, please be patient. Students should be AT their designated bus stop, visible to the bus driver. Students waiting in the house or garage MUST be outside waiting (not walking) to their stop. A school bus driver must pay attention to other motorists and road hazards and cannot be looking in garages and houses for students. 

* Be sure someone responsible walks with your child and waits with them at the bus stop. Kindergarten students MUST have a parent or guardian meet the bus in order to be dropped off. If someone different will be meeting the bus please call the Transportation Office so they may inform the driver of the change. 

* Before you leave the house, put everything that your child will need into their backpack so they won’t drop items along the way. Make sure all loose straps, drawstrings, etc. are secured so they won’t get caught in the handrail or door of the bus as they are entering or exiting. 

* If possible, dress your child in bright, contrasting colors so drivers can easily see them. Take extra precaution when they are waiting at the bus stop in the dark. In cold weather, dress your child in a warm hat instead of having them wear a hood. Hoods can make it more difficult for them to hear and see traffic as they are crossing the street. 

* Make sure your child leaves for the bus stop at a reasonable time to avoid rushing or running, remember, students are required to be AT the bus stop at least 5 minutes before their pick up time. 

* Please give extra kisses and hugs BEFORE the bus is at your stop. Your child will need to pay attention to the bus driver’s hand signals when it’s time to get on the bus, you don’t want to distract your child OR cause the bus to wait. 

* Show your child how to safely walk to the bus stop. Always walk on the sidewalk when possible, stay out of the street. If you must walk in the road, walk as close to the side of the road as possible, and always walk facing oncoming traffic. 

ALWAYS communicate any changes to your child’s transportation by email  at transport@perry-lake.org or a phone call (440) 259-3005 The driver needs to concentrate on driving and safety at the bus stop, and cannot document requests.

What are rules for other vehicles near a school bus?

Amber (yellow) flashing lights at the top of the bus indicate the bus is preparing to stop to load or unload children. Although you are not required to stop when the amber lights are flashing, you should be prepared to stop as soon as the bus comes to a full stop.

Red lights/Stop Arm: When the bus stops, red lights on the top of the bus and the stop arm will begin flashing, signaling drivers that children are entering or exiting the bus and may be crossing the street. Stop and wait until the red lights stop flashing and the bus begins moving before starting to drive again.

* Never pass a school bus on the right

* All school buses must stop before crossing railroad tracks, never pass a bus at a railroad crossing

* Be aware of school zone signals and always obey the posted speed limits

Failure to stop for a school bus adds 2 points to your license in Ohio and is punishable by fines up to $500. You must appear in court and the judge has the discretion to suspend your driver’s license for up to one year.
