Kiss 'N Ride Program

Kiss 'N Ride Executive Summary 

The purpose of this program is to empower parents and
school communities as they strive to keep all children safe.

What is the Kiss ‘N Ride Program?

The Kiss ‘N Ride Program is a convenient, safe and efficient procedure for dropping off children at school in the morning, and for picking up children from school in the afternoon. Once your car has come to a complete stop in a designated area, a staff member or volunteer will be waiting to greet you, and to ensure your child safely arrives to or departs from school. This program separates vehicular traffic from school bus traffic to further enhance the safe and efficient transportation process.

Why is there a need for the Kiss ‘N Ride Program?

The Rainy River District School Board is committed to student safety. As more and more parents drive their children to and from school, there is a need to address safety issues. Increased congestion in front and around schools has become a serious health and safety issue. Elementary schools are of particular concern due to the ages of children involved. Kiss ‘N Ride is a proven proactive strategy to help ensure the safety of all our children. Injuries that children can sustain in a traffic incident are predictable and preventable.
