    STUDENT CONDUCT AT SCHOOL BUS LOADING ZONES:
    Students will stand in a line facing traffic so that they may see the bus approaching.  The line will be at least 6 (six) feet back from the spot where the bus will stop.  Students will not approach the bus until the bus has come to a complete stop and the driver opens the bus doors.
     
     
    ESCORTING STUDENTS (RED LIGHT):
    If the bus travels in both directions on the same road, the pupil will remain on the bus so that he/she can exit on the correct side of the road.
     
    When a school bus is stopped on a highway or private road for the purpose of loading or unloading pupils, the driver will determine whether traffic is controlled by a traffic officer or official traffic control signal.  If there is no crossing guard or control signal, the driver will ensure that the flashing red signal lights and stop signal arm, if so equipped, are activated.  Then, the driver will escort all students in pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, grades 1 to 8 inclusive. The driver shall use an approved hand-held stop sign while escorting the students.
     
     
    STUDENTS WALKING TO AND FROM SCHOOL BUS STOPS:
    Students are instructed to go directly to and from the bus stop.  Students and parents are
