Miller Avenue School and Wading River School students were reminded of key bus safety tips and lessons during an interactive bus program recently provided at the schools.

“Safety Sally,” a program offered by BOCES transportation services, taught the students bus stop behavior, boarding and exiting a school bus properly and demonstrations in seatbelt use and proper seating while on the bus. They watched an educational video, took part in a question and answer session, also learned about danger zones, universal crossing signals and emergency bus drills before finishing their visit with an adult-assisted evacuation out of the back of the bus. Each student was also presented with reinforcement materials to share with their families and friends.
