Be Aware of Buses

Our school buses are responsible for transporting our most precious assets. Please remember to drive carefully when buses and students are present (and all other times).  It is illegal to pass a bus when the stop arm is extended; preview the image below about multi-lane traffic rules when buses are present. Vehicles traveling in both directions must stop when there are two lanes of traffic and no median. On multi-lanes of traffic with a paved median and turn lanes, all traffic must stop in both directions. On multi-lanes of traffic with a barrier in the median such as grass, dirt, or concrete partition, only traffic behind the bus must stop; the other lanes should proceed with caution.  Please encourage others to follow this law.
