  • RED flashing lights and the extended ‘STOP’ arm means traffic (in both directions of a 2 lane roadway) is required to stop until the lights stop flashing and the extended ‘STOP’ arm is withdrawn;
  • YELLOW flashing lights indicate the bus is preparing to stop;
    • Use caution when coming to a bus stop;
    • Follow all school zone speed limits;
    • Look for crossing guards and students in cross walks;
    • Never pass a bus on the outside of a turn.
