Transporting students safely and efficiently can be successfully accomplished with the cooperation and help of the parents.

Parent Tips for a Safe Ride for Students

  • Make sure your children are at the bus stop (5) minutes before the scheduled bus arrival. Student should be standing in their designated “Place of Safety before the bus arrives."
  • Students must wait for the driver's eye contact and hand signal before boarding the bus per ORC 3301-83-13C6.
  • Make sure to dress children appropriately for the weather, since students may have to wait in the rain and cold.
  • If your child misses the bus, please take them to school. Please do not take your child(ren) to another stop or chase the bus as this is very dangerous.
  • Teach your children the rules for a safe bus ride.
  • Stay off the road: Watch for traffic. Stay away from strangers.
  • Stay in your seat.
  • Wait for the bus to come to a complete stop before loading and unloading.
  • Keep hands inside the bus: Never throw anything out of the window.
  • Walk at least ten (10) steps ahead of the bus and wait for the bus drivers hand signal before you cross the road.
  • Parents of all Abraham Lincoln School Students: A parent/guardian must be at the stop to receive your child(ren) or they will be returned to the school.
