    Transportation Safety
    Here are some basic rules and guidelines for you to teach your children about traveling to and from school.

    Loading Zone Safety Procedures 
    Keeping Children Safe In and Around the School Bus 

    Safety rules for children who ride the bus:

    • Arrive at the bus stop 10 minutes before the bus scheduled arrival time. Children who arrive late may run after the bus and be injured.
    • Stand back from the curb while waiting for the bus.
    • Don’t play near the road.
    • Find a seat and sit down as quickly as possible.
    • Sit facing forward. This way the bus seats can do their job and protect you during sudden stops.

    When the bus is moving, stay in your seat. Waller ISD follows state guidelines which state students should be assigned a seat on the bus.

    • Waller ISD will not leave a student who is age 9 and under at a bus stop on the afternoon school bus route unless a parent or guardian is there to receive them.
    • Don’t eat or drink on the bus. While this rule does help keep the bus clean, the main reason for it is to prevent choking if the bus stops suddenly or hits a bump.
    • Keep your body inside the bus.
    • Only cross in front of the bus when you can see the driver’s face and signal.
    • Never walk behind the bus. Drivers cannot see pedestrians crossing behind the bus.
    • Don’t reach under the bus to retrieve something. Keep all your belongings secure so they don’t end up under the bus.
