BUS SAFETY Some 25 million students nationwide begin and end their day with a trip on a school bus. Designed for safety, with flashing lights, giant mirrors, stop-sign arms and that bright yellow color, students are far more likely to get to school safely when taking a school bus than traveling by car, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. School buses are designed to protect students through compartmentalization – closely spaced seats and high, energy-absorbing seat backs. Seat belts protect students, too. In 2015, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration stated its support for lap and shoulder belts on buses, and NSC has joined in support of this position to ensure the safest ride for children. Tips for a Safe Ride School buses are the safest way for students to travel. Nearly two-thirds of school bus-related fatalities of school-age children occur outside of the school bus. Children need to do their part to stay safe both in and around school buses: At the Bus Stop: ● Arrive early at the bus stop – at least five minutes before the bus is scheduled to arrive ● Stand 6 feet (or three giant steps) away from the curb while waiting for the bus ● Supervise young children Around the Bus ● Cross in front of the bus – at least 10 feet (or five giant steps) – and make eye contact with the driver before crossing ● Never walk behind the bus ● If you drop something near the bus, do not pick it up; tell the bus driver instead Getting On/Off the Bus ● Wait until the bus has stopped and the door opens before approaching the bus or standing up on the bus ● Use the handrail ● Secure any loose or hanging objects like straps on a backpack or drawstrings on a hood Behavior on the Bus: ● Buckle up if seat belts are available ● Stay in your seat keeping head, arms and papers inside the bus, and talk quietly ● Keep aisles clear of books and bags

The ag program, for grades 8-12, is currently being held in the back half of the ag facility where we usually run our welding and other programs that need space. The front part is currently being used for storage as we get ready to clean it out. When the front portion is torn down, we will temporarily lose a classroom, the wood working area, water and bathrooms, and storage. The ag classes will move to the new modular we brought in. Remember, as noted earlier, these new modulars don’t have bathrooms. So students will be traveling between the back half of the ag building to the modular and then to the school building constantly until we are able to put up the Sprung structure. The new structure, even though it is a moveable structure, will have a new heating system, bathrooms, and a woodworking area, just like a permanent structure would have. Class will still move between the modular and the ag building, depending on what is being taught and how it is being taught as we won’t set up walls to separate out a classroom in the Sprung structure. Our ag program is a vital program for our school. We have had so many students go through the programs we offer in ag. Many of those have remained in our community and continue to farm, ranch, run businesses, and support our ag and FFA programs. Continuing to provide a safe and modern facility to grow our programs is very important to our school and community. Your vote on the building reserve levy is very important to our program offerings.

How does $70,000 per year for five years benefit the school and specifically the ag program and FFA in Park City. The $70,000 will be used to make payments on a loan that will enable the school to purchase a Sprung structure (example in the picture) for our Ag program. As noted earlier, the front half of our Ag building needs to be removed due to structural issues. The district looked at a number of options and settled on the Sprung style of buildings because of its durability, energy efficiency, and mobility. The Board looked at the possibility of renting the building for five years vs purchasing it, but the cost difference was minimal. One of the best reasons to purchase the structure is that it is movable. So when the district is able to eventually build a new school, the Sprung structure can be moved to either that facility or to the bus barn to be used as a bus shop. That would enable the district the opportunity to sell the current ag building property without losing its investment in this structure. REMEMBER TO VOTE ON SEPTEMBER 19.
