This is a safety announcement on behalf of Franklin County Schools:

As you know, school buses play an important part of the student's day. It is a vital link between home and school. While you are driving, please be mindful of buses and be prepared to stop.


Once the flashing lights have turned red and the stop signs have extended from the side of the bus, it is unlawful for any vehicle to pass the stopped school bus while it is loading or unloading passengers. On a highway divided by a median, cars traveling on the opposite side from the stopped school bus are not required to stop. Drivers will be recording license plates of violators and will report incidences to local authorities.  Please download the Operation Stop Arm PDF to the right [under Related Documents] to view Georgia's School Bus Stop Law.

 

Safety is the number one priority for Franklin County Schools. Please help us take care of our students as we prepare them for the challenges of tomorrow.
