9/2/2021 - HEALTH DEPARTMENT DETERMINATION
On September 2, 2021, the New York State Department of Health issued a determination requiring all school personnel, including bus drivers and contracted bus drivers, to submit proof of full vaccination or submit to weekly testing for the COVID-19 virus. This is not a requirement to be vaccinated, rather vaccination exempts you from weekly testing. This takes effect immediately.

How to Behave Around School Buses in New York
(Information from the Department of Motor Vehicles - New York)
School Buses are Unlike Other Vehicles
School buses have bigger blind spots, take longer to stop, and need more room to maneuver than a standard vehicle. Buses should be treated differently than you would treat an average-sized vehicle. It is important for drivers to know how to react to a school bus in operation.
When you encounter a school bus:
Right of Way
When a school bus stops and flashes its red lights, traffic approaching from either direction must stop before reaching the bus:
Share the Road
Yellow flashing lights mean the bus is preparing to stop to load or unload children. Slow down and prepare to stop your vehicle.
Red flashing lights mean the bus has stopped and children are getting on or off. Stop your vehicle and wait until the school bus resumes motion or until signaled by the driver or police officer to proceed.
