During this important province-wide awareness raising campaign, most Federation member school bus Carriers organize numerous activities on school bus safety in collaboration with their school boards and local police forces. Don’t hesitate to call upon the carriers who serve your school. They are available to help you do classroom activities, carry out simulations around a school bus and more.
The SAAQ, in collaboration with its partners, including the Bus Carriers Federation, has published a folder titled School Bus Transportation, a Shared Responsibility which helps citizens, bus drivers, parents and children understand the role that each must play to ensure the safety of students when they are on their way to school or coming home. The PDF version of the folder is available for download on the SAAQ’s Web site at www.saaq.gouv.qc.ca.
CAA-Quebec launched its school safety patrol program in 1929. There are now more than 5,000 safety patrollers in 4th, 5th and 6th grades every school year.
