Operation Safe Stop 2019

On Wednesday, October 23, 2019, the 23rd Annual Operation Safe Stop will be conducted in communities across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as part of National School Bus Safety Week, which runs October 21-25. You may see local police shadowing a bus along its route to pick up and drop off Hempfield School District students.

Operation Safe Stop is a public awareness and enforcement effort to educate the motoring public that passing a stopped school bus, when children are loading or unloading, is both dangerous and illegal.
