The First Time Rider Program is an interactive opportunity for parents/guardians and students to become familiar with a school bus and the safety rules and features that keep students safe on the bus.
The focus of the session is to familiarize parents/guardians and students with the following bus safety procedures:
-how to cross the road safely;
-getting on and off the bus safely;
-bus rules and proper behaviour on the bus
-how to exit the bus in the event of an emergency
The program also includes a video reinforcing the safety rules as well as handouts for the students and parents/guardians.
