National School Bus Safety Week, October 18-22

National School Bus Safety Week is October 18-22, 2021. We appreciate our school bus drivers and monitors for the service they provide to the Boise School District. This is also an opportunity to emphasize the importance of school bus safety on our roads.

When there is a school bus stopped on the road and their 'stop arm' is extended, drivers on a two or three lane street are expected to stop for the safety of our students loading and unloading from the bus. All busses have cameras on their stop arms and violators are reported to Boise, Garden City, or Ada County law enforcement. There has been a recent increase in fines for drivers who violate this law.
