School Bus Safety

Maintaining a safe school environment is a top priority of the Brunswick (Brittonkill) Central School District. As a result, the District asks all drivers to obey all signs, painted traffic flow indicators, or other control signals while on school grounds. For parents dropping off or picking up children, we ask parents to allow enough time to do this safely. It may be necessary for parents to wait in a line of cars for a few minutes to ensure the safety of all children.

For our children’s safety, please:

Slow down. Fast moving cars present a danger to students and adults who may be walking to parking lots or between buildings.

Do not park in fire lanes, which are painted yellow.

Do not pass school buses when their red lights are flashing. It is illegal to pass a bus with its red lights flashing, even on school property.

Do not try to beat out buses at school dismissal. This can cause an unsafe situation.

Please follow the directions of all school bus drivers and staff directing traffic.

Please remember, drivers can receive traffic violations on school property.

Video Cameras

Starting in the 2008-2009 school year, all large district school buses are installed with digital video security cameras to help provide safer school bus rides for all Tamarac students. Each bus will have cameras installed in the front and back, allowing bus drivers to focus their attention on the road. If the District receives a complaint about a student or driver, the cameras will be used to help determine what happened on the bus.
