National School Bus Safety Week is October 17-21, and Michigan City Area Schools is once again joining school bus industry officials nationwide to highlight the importance of school bus safety. This year’s theme for National Bus Safety Week is “Stop on Red.” “Bus Safety Week is a good time to remind the driving public to STOP when the school bus lights flash red and the stop arm is extended,” says Val Skwiat, MCAS Trainer and Bus Safety Specialist. “Unfortunately there are motorists out there who do not stop, and this is putting children in danger.” To highlight Bus Safety Week, MCAS bus drivers and monitors will make short presentations to students about a different safety topic each day, including avoiding “danger zones” near buses, procedures at railroad crossings, safe loading and unloading, good behavior, and bullying prevention.
