It is now a State Law that all school districts are required to have a minimum of 2 emergency bus evacuation drills twice a year. October and January are the months BISD will conduct these drills.
All students transported in a school vehicle should be instructed in safe riding practices. These drills are just as important as having fire and tornado drills during the school day.
The idea of being involved in a traffic accident is always difficult. All BISD school bus drivers are instructed in the safe operation of the school bus, and part of this operation is the safe evacuation of the bus in the event of an accident or emergency.
