No matter the location--whether it's in the classroom or on the street--HCPSS values safety as a priority for everyone.
Motorists are required by law to stop when the red lights on buses are flashing. All drivers should decrease their speed and be prepared to stop when they see a school bus beginning to slow down and when students are present on the roadside.
Student pedestrians should walk with heads and eyes up (devices down) and make eye contact with drivers when crossing streets.
