Back to School Safety

The South Carolina Department of Public Safety encourages parents and teachers to talk with their children about the importance of safety before and after school starts. This page is meant to serve as a guide by housing important safety information in a central location. The back-to-school season is a great time to teach, motivate, practice and encourage safety habits as students travel to and from school. We hope schools and childcare facilities will take advantage of the information offered here, including safety videos, fun activity sheets and educational materials for parents and caregivers.

Please watch this video with your children to ensure they know how to safely get on and off a school bus
