Barney the Bus Visits MRE
Thursday, September 19, 2019 -
Those big yellow school buses can be intimidating for the youngest members of the Liverpool Central School District community, but a pint-sized friend is always around to lend a helping hand.
During the first two months of the school year, a team from the LCSD Transportation Center visits elementary students in kindergarten through second grade to talk about school bus safety.
With the assistance of Barney, a remote-control bus, the bus drivers and attendants show students the safety features on school buses – such as its flashing red and yellow lights – and explain what those lights mean for them and for people who are driving. The team also shows students the safety procedures they need to follow while entering, riding or exiting the school bus.
