School Bus Safety

Watch for kids around the school bus. Here are some important reminders about school buses, both in the Eagle Heights’ community and around Madison.

  • You must stop a minimum of 20 feet from a stopped school bus with its red lights flashing.
  • You must stop whether the school bus is on your side of the road, the opposite side of the road or at an intersection that you are approaching.
  • After the school bus red lights have stopped flashing, watch for children along the side of the road. Do not go until they have completely left the roadway.
