Five New Buses with Seat Belts

SACS to Introduce Five New Buses Equipped with Seat Belts
Posted on 11/26/2018

Beginning Wednesday, November 28, five new buses equipped with seat belts will join SACS' Transportation fleet.  Below is a list of the buses to be replaced along with the corresponding NEW bus number. 

Old Bus Number                    New Bus Number

Bus #42                                  #43

Bus #14                                  #14

Bus #41                                  #10

Bus #21                                  #45

Bus #30                                  #2

Each seat in the new buses feature three lap-shoulder seat belts that can secure three elementary students or two middle or high school students.

Drivers will practice fastening seat belts with students and will inspect each seat when buses are loaded to ensure the students are safely buckled. Students will be required to wear the seat belts whenever the bus is in motion. Students who fail to adhere to SACS seat belt policy may face disciplinary action. Transportation’s seat belt policy is found in the Student/Parent Handbook.

SACS is committed to the safety of its staff and students. All future bus purchases to SACS’ fleet will be seat belt-equipped.

If you have any questions please contact SACS Transportation at (260) 431-2070. 

Please encourage your student to buckle up. Your support is appreciated.
