Back to school!

The sidewalks and then hallways were buzzing with excitement as students returned to school this morning.

School is back in session at B-B-E schools for the 2014-2015 academic year. Below are some tips and pointers for adults and children from the Stearns County Sheriff's Office:

Riding the Bus
  • When getting on and off the bus, check to see if any cars are passing on the shoulder.
  • Before crossing in front of the bus, step away and make eye contact with the driver.
  • Look both ways when crossing the street. 
  • Cross only at intersections or crosswalks and obey all traffic signs and signals.
  • When a car approaches make eye contact with the driver before crossing.
  • Take extra care when crossing multiple lanes to be sure all cars have stopped.
  • Stop at least 20 feet from a school bus with red flashing lights and the stop sign out, whether you’re approaching from behind or from the opposite direction.
  • Slow down around schools and stop for crossing guards.
  • Yield to pedestrians at street corners, and both marked and unmarked crosswalks.

  • Be safe!
