CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. -- Chappaqua Schools is promoting school bus safety this week and is offering tips to parents, students and motorists to help keep kids safe. 

On the way to the bus:

  • Be alert, arrive at your stop at least five minutes early.
  • Always obey all traffic lights and signals.
  • Plan to walk with schoolmates whenever possible, facing the traffic.
  • When crossing streets, always cross at crosswalks and intersections.
  • Look both ways before crossing the street.

At the bus stop:

  • Stand back from the curb.
  • Don't push or shove when entering or exiting and always use the steps and hand rail.
  • Always obey the bus driver and wait for the driver's signal before crossing.
  • Always cross at least 10 feet in front of the school bus.
  • Never, never crawl under the bus.

When riding the bus:

  • Take your seat quietly and quickly, remain seated when the bus is moving and don't get out of your seat when the bus is moving.
  • Keep your feet on the floor and never ever extend your hands, arms, head or any object out the window of a bus.
  • Talk in a quiet voice, be courteous to the driver and schoolmates, and try not to distract the driver through misbehavior.
