School Bus Safety: Elementary Version


*Music playing*
*Assorted conversation* *Bus sounds*
Bus driver:Alright, you guys, have a great day. Voiceover: Did you know that there is an area
around a school bus that is very dangerous? This is an area near the bus where the bus
driver might not see you, or cars might be moving when you are getting on and off the
school bus. The danger zone is the twelve-foot area that
surrounds a stopped school bus, but the most dangerous areas are around both front tires,
the front door, and the right rear tires. Students: Give that back! Stop! Bus driver: Annabelle, Mitch, what are y’all
doing? Voiceover: It’s very important that you are
always aware of the twelve-foot danger zone around the stopped school bus. You should never return to the bus for something
you left behind or dropped without getting the driver’s attention first. *Music playing*
Voiceover: You can get a driver’s attention by raising your hands above your head and
waving. Wait for the driver to see you and give you
instructions, before returning to the bus or before picking anything up dropped near
the bus. If you do not get the driver’s attention,
you should never attempt to retrieve the item. Driver: Yeah, but remember, you should always
have your things inside your backpack before you get on and off the bus, so you don’t drop
anything. Okay? Just remember that so you’ll be safe. Students: Okay, thank you. *Music playing*
