School Bus Awareness

When a school bus stops and activates its stop arm and flashing red lights, all traffic must stop from both directions – whether it is a two- or four-lane road. When a school bus stops and activates its stop arm and flashing red lights on a divided highway with a median separation, traffic approaching the bus from behind must stop. In all cases, stopped motorists must remain stopped until the bus no longer displays its flashing red lights and stop arm.

Healthy Snacks

USD 356 is encouraging healthy snack choices as part of our district wellness policy. Part of our wellness policy is encouraging students and parents to consider fresh fruits and whole grain items when selecting treats for birthday celebrations and classroom parties. The Kyle Trueblood and USD 356 staff appreciate your consideration and support of our wellness policy.
