- Get to the bus stop five minutes before your scheduled pick-up time. The school bus driver usually cannot wait for late students.

Stay behind the curb and wait until the bus stops completely and opens the door before approaching the bus.

- If any object falls under the bus, tell the driver before retrieving it.

location should also be kept in their backpack.
