JONESVILLE — How do you get off of a school bus in an emergency?

It’s a very important question, the answer to which is of critical importance to the children who ride school buses to and from their schools and on any field trips and/or other special activities that require them to leave from and return to school during the school day.

It was a question answered recently at Jonesville Elementary/Middle School where students learned from the drivers of the buses that serve their school how to safely get out of a school bus in an emergency situation. Students took part in exercises designed to show them how to properly use the emergency exits on the buses. Not only did students learn how to successfully get off the buses themselves, but also how to help others get off the buses as well.

The exercise took place in the front parking lot of the school where the school’s buses drop the students each morning and pick them up in the afternoon.

The press release announcing the event states that “Jonesville Elementary /Middle School thanks our bus drivers for helping our students practice bus safety. Our students learned the proper way to evacuate the bus in case of an emergency.”
