National School Bus Safety Week is October 22 - 26.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette wants to remind all residents the importance of school bus safety and that bullying is not okay.

“The school bus can be a very vulnerable place for students,” said Schuette. “This is why I encourage all bus drivers, parents, and teachers to be aware of the signs of bullying and know how to intervene in potentially dangerous situations and properly report the tip to OK2SAY.”

During the third week of every October, citizens throughout the U.S. are asked to take part in recognizing school bus safety and work to promote and improve high standards for students and drivers.

If bullying is happening on a bus, students should tell an adult what is going on. They can also report the incident to OK2SAY. Another good idea is to ride or get on the bus with a buddy and stick together. Also, stand up for other students who are being bullied to stop it from going any further.

You don’t have to be a school bus driver to be a hero. Students, teachers, parents, school officials, friends, and neighbors can submit tips though any of the following ways:
