Be aware of moving traffic. Leave plenty of time to get to the bus stop. Don’t rush.Pay attention to your surroundings; listening to your music player or playing handheld video games may lead to distractions and potential injury. Don’t wear a hood as it makes it more difficult to hear and see traffic. Stay at a safe distance from the street and don’t play around while waiting for the bus. Stay 10 giant steps away from the outside of the bus while the bus is pulling up so the driver can see you. Wait for the bus to stop completely before you move towards it to get on, or before you stand up to get off. Be cautious of clothing or backpacks with drawstrings, toggles, or key chains that can get caught on the bus handrails and doors. Hold the handrail going up and down the stairwell so you don’t trip.Find a seat and sit down as soon as you’re on the bus. Be courteous and respectful to your driver. Listen to directions. Don’t put your head, arms, papers or anything out the window. Don’t pick up anything you drop near the bus. The driver may not see you. Instead, ask the driver for help. Wait to cross the street until the driver lets you know it’s OK. Stay away from the bus wheels at all times – the driver cannot see you.©2013 First Student Inc.
If your parent meets you at the bus stop, make sure he or she waits on the same side of the street where you will be dropped off so you won’t have to cross the street.

Thunderstorm and Lightning Safety Tips
What Are Thunderstorms?
A thunderstorm comes from rain-bearing clouds that also produce thunder and lightning. All thunderstorms produce lighting and therefore are dangerous. A thunderstorm is classified as a severe thunderstorm when it contains large (at least one inch) hail and/or winds of 58 MPH or greater. If you can hear thunder, you are close enough to be affected by lightning, which can strike up to 10 miles ahead of or trailing a storm. Thunderstorms can occur by themselves, in clusters, or in lines. The typical thunderstorm is 15 miles in diameter and produces heavy rain for 30 minutes to an hour.
Thunderstorms are very common in the spring and summer months throughout Massachusetts, with 10–30 days of thunderstorms each year. Thunderstorms can be extremely destructive and can produce lightning, hail, high winds, flash floods, or tornadoes.
The National Weather Service issues severe thunderstorm watches and warnings to alert the public of potential severe weather. It is important to understand the difference between watch and warning so you know what to do to stay safe:
Severe Thunderstorm Watch
Thunderstorms are possible based on weather conditions.
- Pay attention to changing weather conditions, and be prepared to shelter immediately.
Severe Thunderstorm Warning
A severe thunderstorm has been sighted or indicated by weather radar.
- Seek shelter immediately.
