Blan students learn bus safety


Blanchester’s Putman Elementary students participated in their annual bus safety training on Aug. 28, 30 and 31. Pre-K through third grade learned and reviewed a number of bus safety topics which included danger and safety zones, hand signals, proper crossing procedures (including interrupting hand signals), how to sit and behave properly while the bus is in motion and stranger danger techniques. “The classroom component of the training was conducted on the bus,” said Transportation Supervisor Barb Prater. “I have learned over the years students enjoy sitting on the bus rather than in the classroom. The whole training is approximately 30 minutes in length, with the pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students taking a little longer. Next month we will be conducting evacuation drills with the students.” Building Principal Mike Snider said, “The highlight of the training for the children was watching the bus tires run over water balloons and a tin can.” He added, “I would like to thank the bus drivers for taking time out of their schedule to lead the training.”
