" BUSTER THE BUS "
It is important that children learn school bus safety rules and procedures in case of an emergency.
The Thames Valley District School Board and the London District Catholic School Board uses "Buster the Bus" School Bus Safety Program to teach and reinforce bus safety.
It's designed for students up to grade 4 and covers the do's and don'ts of:
- Waiting for the bus
- Crossing in front of the bus
- Getting on the bus
- Riding the bus
- Exiting the bus
"Buster the Bus" is a remote-controlled school bus that sings, talks, listens and plays music. His presentation uses physical participation and verbalization of the rules and procedures to help students remember them.
School Bus Evacuation
In order to ensure students know what to do in case an emergency evacuation is ever required, there is a practice evacuation that includes all students.
