Safety First

In Wantagh, bus passes are issued by the first day of school to all eligible riders

in Grades K-12. Bus passes must be shown in order to board buses each day,

and are not transferable.

We want our students' ride on the Wantagh school buses to be a pleasant and

safe one, so we expect all passengers to adhere to the following important

safety regulations:

  • Showbus pass when entering the bus, both morning and afternoon.
  • Cross 10 feet in front of the bus, and wait for the driver's signal to cross.
  • Never cross behind a bus.
  • Wear seat belts.
  • Keep head and arms inside the vehicle at all times.
  • Remain seated until the bus comes to a full stop.
  • Enter and leave the bus only when it is completely stopped.

Remember, the safety of our bus riding students is a cooperative effort on the

part of the community, parents, drivers and bus companies. It's important to work

together to make each year a safe one for Wantagh students.
