#Stop on red

Next week is the start of National School Bus Week, running from Monday until Friday, the theme is #STOP ON RED.

The Stephens County School System transportation department will be in full operation mode as they help educate the students, teachers, school staff and community about school bus safety.

During the week, bus drivers will be at each school teaching the students about bus safety and will be practicing bus evacuations.

Bus driver Jan Masten, told WNEG News, Wednesday morning, how the community could become involved, saying, “It’s as simple as stoping when our red lights are flashing.”

If you see a car pass a bus with the stop sign out, if possible, please get the tag number of the car and report it to 911.
