HENNEPIN COUNTY SHERIFF: School Safety Week

School Safety Week
The Hennepin County Sheriff's Office supports National School Safety Week and National School Bus Safety Week which took place from October 20-24. Sheriff Stanek and deputies with the Community Engagement Team visited elementary schools this week to treat students to a certificate for a free ice cream cone for practicing safe habits on their school buses.

DRIVERS:

  • Drivers should always follow the speed limit and slow down in school zones and near bus stops.
  • Remember to stay alert and look for kids who may be trying to get to or from the school bus. 
  • Slow down and stop if you’re driving near a school bus that is flashing yellow or red lights. This means the bus is either preparing to stop (yellow) or already stopped (red), and children are getting on or off.

Please review the following safety tips with your children because injuries can occur if kids are not careful and aware when getting on and off the bus.

TOP TIPS FOR KIDS:

  • Walk with your kids to the bus stop and wait with them until it arrives. 
  • Tell kids to stand at least three giant steps back from the curb as the bus approaches and board the bus one at a time.
  • Teach kids to wait for the bus to come to a complete stop before getting off and never to walk behind the bus.
  • If your child needs to cross the street after exiting the bus, he or she should take five giant steps in front of the bus, make eye contact with the bus driver and cross when the driver indicates it’s safe. 
  • Teach kids to look left, right and left again before crossing the street.

Instruct younger kids to use handrails when boarding or exiting the bus. Be careful of straps or drawstrings that could get caught in the door. If your children drop something, they should tell the bus driver and make sure the bus driver is able to see them before they pick it up.
