Transportation Tips

  • Wait for the bus at your assigned stop (bus drivers will not add or change stops)

  • Wait for the bus in a safe place – well off the roadway

  • Enter the bus in an orderly manner and promptly take a seat

  • Follow the bus driver’s instructions

  • Remain in the seat while the bus is in motion

  • Keep head and arms inside the bus at all times

  • Keep the aisles clear at all times

  • Be courteous to the driver and other passengers

  • Be alert to traffic when exiting the bus

  • Pets and other animals are not permitted on buses, except for service animals

  • Projects/instruments too large for a student’s lap are not permitted

  • Board-approved audio/video recording equipment is utilized on buses to maintain safety and security of all students

  • Significant bus delays of 20 minutes or more will be communicated to parents via Infinite Campus messenger

  • Primary students must be met by a parent or guardian at the designated drop-off location, or students will be returned to the Primary School. (Adult supervision waivers can be found on the district website.)

  • Parents requesting permission for their student to ride a bus other than the assigned bus must provide advanced written permission to the school’s administrative assistant.  Such requests are to be made for emergency situations only.
