Local bus drivers offers school bus safety tips for students

Quincy, IL (WGEM) — School is back in session on Thursday in Quincy. Local bus drivers want you to have a conversation with your students before they get on the bus.

Bus Driver Instructor Dan Bartelt said it’s important for kids follow rules of the bus. A big part of that can happen by having a conversation with your kids about what to do.

“One thing that’s important is to stay off the roads, kids,” said Bartelt. “Stay off the roads, stay back five feet or so from the edge of the road way. Do not approach the bus, until it has come to a complete stop and the bus driver has urged you to come forward to the bus.”

Bartelt said to tell your kids to only walk on marked cross walks and sidewalks when walking to and from school.
