Will my student be trained in Bus Safety Evacuation Drills?
State statute (MN. Statute 123B.90) requires students be trained semi-annually (K through 10th) in
school bus evacuations and other emergency procedures. These drills are carefully planned and supervised to provide meaningful experiences for emergency situations.
All students (including walkers) are given an opportunity to participate, including those
children who only ride a bus on a special trip.
The major objective of a school bus evacuation drill is to get the children off the bus
safely, in the shortest possible time and in an orderly fashion. If an emergency did happen, the students have practiced exactly what to do.
