The Arkansas Department of Education has asked for help in communities across Arkansas getting the word out about the “Flashing Red. Kids Ahead.” campaign to increase student safety when approaching school buses. AEDCE would like to help them in their efforts and is sharing info with you in hopes that you in turn will share in your community via social media or other communication efforts. This would be an easy & effective way to show support for the kids in their community as they head back to school and could also potentially help keep more students safe. If you already have back-to-school communications in place, this would be a great addition to those efforts.
To learn more about this campaign and resources (flyers, graphics, etc.) that are available for you to use/share, please CLICK HERE and the logo for the campaign is attached. Thank you!
About Flashing Red. Kids Ahead.
Through the Flashing Red. Kids Ahead. school bus safety campaign, the Arkansas Department of Education, Arkansas Association of Pupil Transportation, and Arkansas School Bus Mechanics Association remind educators, parents, school bus drivers, and community leaders to obey all traffic laws whenever they are near a school bus. It is illegal to pass a stopped school bus whenever its red lights are flashing, as students are present. The fines, penalties and punishment for anyone found guilty of illegally passing a stopped school bus were increased dramatically by Act 2128 of 2005, also known as Isaac’s Law. Help keep our students safe! Remember: Flashing Red. Kids Ahead.
