School Bus Evacuation Drills


Dear Parents/Guardians of Franklin Township,


To ensure the safety of all students, our school bus drivers will be discussing school bus safety and performing the Indiana DOE Required Evacuation Training with our students. Below you will find the schedule for these trainings separated by individual schools.


*High School: Monday, Sept. 11 @approx. 3:00 pm

*MSE: Tuesday, Sept. 12 @ approx. 2:15 pm

*MSW: Wednesday, Sept. 13 @ approx. 1:40 pm

*Acton: Thursday, Sept. 14 @ approx. 8:40 am

*Adams: Friday, Sept. 15 @ approx. 8:40 am

*Arlington: Monday, Sept. 18 @ approx. 8:40 am

*Bunker Hill: Tuesday, Sept. 19 @ approx. 8:40 am

*Kitley: Wednesday, Sept. 20 @ approx. 8:40 am

*South Creek: Thursday, Sept. 21 @ approx. 8:40 am

*Thompson Crossing: Friday, Sept. 22 @ approx. 8:40 am

It is our goal to prepare your student and our staff members for the unexpected need to safely evacuate a school bus in an emergency situation. The need for this action would only take place if the students were in immediate danger. Each year we practice different scenarios to help us be ready for the unexpected emergency. Please help our efforts by speaking with your child and preparing them for our drill. Students will be instructed to leave any carry-on items in their assigned seat. Please help us the day of the drill by having them wear sensible clothing as they may be instructed to slide down and slide out the rear door while being assisted. They will be required to stand outside for a short period of time. This practice exercise will be handled professionally with the same attention to safety as a school fire drill. We appreciate your support in this training exercise.


Also the following bus rules are posted on the bus. Please review them with your child. Thank you!


*No food or drink on the bus.

*Wear seatbelts, if equipped

*Electronic devices cannot interfere with the safety of the driver and students

*Keep all body parts inside the bus. Windows can be down ¼ of the total window

*Stay in your assigned seats at all times

*No weapons or inappropriate items

*Only Franklin Township staff and students on the bus

*No physical or verbal mistreatment

*Carry-on items must be kept away from emergency exits and out of the aisle
