East Greenbush Central School District’s Transportation Department will hold its second bus safety drill of the school year later this week. (Columbia on Thursday, December 8 and all other schools on Friday, December 9.)
This state-mandated drill will focus on the following:
- ridership rules
- importance of middle loading
- proper use of seat belts
- emergency equipment and exits
The School Bus Driver will also explain what students should do if anyone is following them, taking pictures of them or the school bus, or if they see a suspicious package at the school bus stop.
Students will practice the front door evacuation scenario and demonstrate their knowledge of the safe loading and unloading procedures.
