On Wednesday, Oct. 20, 2021, the 25th 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 18-22. 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. Learn more about Operation Safe Stop here.
