Questions or Comments?
The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) has repeatedly determined that school buses are the most safest mode of transportation to and from school, with fewer fatalities than children riding in cars, on bikes, or walking. Most school bus fatalities occur when children are outside the bus, and 75% of these fatalities involve children under the age of nine.
Help us teach our children school bus and bus stop safety. Please support the driver's authority in enforcing school bus safety and behavior rules.

- Students are allowed to be assigned to only one stop and one bus for both the morning and afternoon. We are unable to provide service to multiple stops for a student, whether for daycare, custody issues, etc. We serve a limited number of non-profit daycares that can become your child’s established stop.

Meet the Bus
Coordinate with other parents to ensure an adult is present at the bus stop every day, especially when children under the age of six are present. Parents are responsible for their children prior to bus arrival and after departing the bus. Kindergarten and Pre-K students will not be allowed to exit the bus without an escort present.
Clothing your children with drawstrings may not always be safe. Drawstrings can catch in playground equipment, fences, and school bus doors.
Remove, shorten or replace drawstrings with another kind of fastener.
In accordance with federal voluntary recalls, St. Lucie County Schools has retrofitted all school and activity bus handrails that will not snag children’s clothing.
