School bus safety focus of S.T.O.P. campaign

Union County Public Schools has begun an initiative called S.T.O.P., which informs students of safe practices to follow at bus stops. The following video offers important suggestions concerning the safety of our students, and how our students can better protect themselves.


S.T.O.P. is an acronym for:


S-tand at your assigned stop at least 10 minutes early.

T-urn left and right. Look both ways before crossing the road.

O-bserve the stop sign and flashing red lights.

P-roceed only when all cars have stopped.


UCPS Superintendent Dr. Ed Davis, the North Carolina Highway Patrol, the Union County Sheriff’s Office and the Monroe Police Department are working together to better insure the safety of UCPS students.
