Almost every student will ride on a school bus at least once this school year! Whether it's to school, on a field trip or to a after school program, it's important to go over school bus safety. On behalf of the Georgia Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Resource Center, we would like to wish you a Happy School Bus Safety Week! 
National School Bus Safety Week is October 21-25. National School Bus Safety Week provides an opportunity to discuss getting to school safely with your students who ride the bus! 
Here are some ideas to help celebrate:
-Incorporate the NHTSA's Child Safety Curriculum Bus Safety Lessons into PE Class. Click here to download the individual lessons. The Bus Safety lesson can be found under Lesson 5.
-Watch school bus safety videos in your class or include them in your morning/afternoon announcements.
