Back to School Safety!

It’s almost time for Back to School, and Yellowhead County would like to remind everyone to be safe on our roads!

Please remind children to:
– Be aware of graders, school buses, industry trucks, and regular traffic
– Keep a safe distance from the road when waiting for the school bus
– Be aware of weather conditions such as snow, fog, and other weather conditions that limit visibility
– Wear bright colors or clothing with reflective material

Drivers, please remember to:
– Slow down and be mindful of school buses and children in school zones
– Be alert and drive with caution when approaching a school bus
– Be prepared to stop and leave children room to get on and off the bus safely
– And DO NOT PASS a school bus with flashing red lights

Thank you for helping to keep Yellowhead County safe!
