​School Bus Safety at the CBE

School bus loading zones provide a safe area for students to embark and disembark the buses. Please do not drive into the school bus loading zone when you pick up or drop off your child.

Help teach your child to safely cross the street around school buses. Children should:

  • Stand back a safe distance from the bus

  • Wait until the bus leaves the stop

  • Walk to the closest intersection

  • Cross the street only when they have a clear view of traffic in both directions and it is safe to do so

The CBE and school bus carriers want to ensure your child's safety and make their experience on the bus a positive one.​​​

CBE families, watch for two important emails sent to you this afternoon about the 2019-20 CBE Budget and transportation fees: https://t.co/V2o9WbefN6 and https://t.co/ISLw30Hnh3 #yycbe #WeAreCBE https://t.co/UYrq5Vb6C8
