Back to School - Bus Safety 

 

As you prepare for the first day back to school, stay safe with these school bus safety tips. Children riding the school bus should arrive at the stop five minutes early, stay out of the street and six feet away from the curb, wait until the bus completely stops before approaching, and remain seated while the bus is moving at all times. When approaching a stopped school bus with activated flashing red lights, Maryland law requires motorists traveling in the same direction as the bus to stop. Motorists approaching the bus from the opposite direction must stop unless there is a physical barrier, such as a median.

Click here for more information on school bus safety and other back-to-school tips, including safe walking and biking, staying home alone after school and required immunizations. This is a City of Gaithersburg announcement.
