Keeping Your Child from Getting Sick



Although district health administrators have not seen any cases of Enterovirus D68 at LRSD schools, we wanted to make sure parents were aware of any symptoms for which they need to be alert.  We are sharing tips from the Arkansas Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control.

To view the full list of student school bus safety tips, click here.

  • Arrive at the bus stops 10 minutes before bus time. Remember the driver is NOT PERMITTED to wait for students.
  • Stay 10 feet away from the front or back of the bus so that the bus driver can see you
  • Wait for the driver to signal you to board the bus. Never move towards the bus until it has stopped and the driver opens the door.
  • Before stepping off the curb to board the bus, look left and right to make sure your path to the bus is clear, especially if the bus is stopped.
  • Check that drawstrings, backpack straps, scarves and loose clothing cannot get caught on the bus handrails, door or seats.
  • Keep the aisles clear. Backpacks or books can block the way to the emergency exit.
  • Students should never use the rear emergency exit except upon the direction of the driver or other authority.
  • Do not leave your seat until the bus arrives at your stop.
  • Do not put your head or arms out of the windows when on the bus.
