NPSSTS Safety Videos - Winter Safety

Holiday Message ScreenshotThe NPSSTS is developing a series of educational videos aimed at improving school bus safety. We all have a role to play in keeping students safe on the bus and on the roads, so we encourage parents, schools, and the general public to view these videos and share them with their children.

Inclement Weather

Regardless of bus and school purpose vehicle cancellations, parents and guardians should remember that the decision to send their children to school in inclement weather lies with them. 

 During extreme cold weather or severe weather storm conditions, we recommend that parents remind their children of possible bus breakdown and/or delays. Parents are advised to exercise their own discretion as to how long their child should wait for the school bus in inclement weather. Parents should have a back-up plan in place to allow for unforeseen circumstances.

Check the Delays and Cancellations tab, our Twitter feed (@NPSSTS), and your local media for updates on delays and cancellations. Please remember that when student transportation is cancelled, schools remain open for students who can safely get there.
