See how we're doing
Safely transporting students to and from school is our top priority. Please help your student become familiar with these guidelines for safe and appropriate behavior while riding the bus. Students are expected to follow all bus safety rules. Failure to adhere to the safety standards may result in disciplinary action or suspension from riding
Always cooperate with all bus
drivers, including substitutes
Follow the directions given by
the bus driver and be respectful
In the morning, be at your stop between five to ten minutes before the scheduled pick-up time (Buses will not wait for students who are not present)
When waiting at a bus stop, wait in a line that starts back from the curb
In the afternoon, walk quickly to your bus. Buses depart 5 to 7 minutes after the bell.(If students miss the bus, the parent/guardian will need to pick them up from school)
If crossing the street at an
intersection, cross with the green light and WALK signal
Get on or off the bus only when
it is completely stopped
Only leave the bus at your assigned stop.
Have student identification ready to show the driver when boarding the bus or at any
time the driver asks for identification
If the bus driver asks a student
to sit in a particular seat, the student should follow that request
Sit in only one seat; do not save
seats for others
Stay in your seat at all times when the bus is moving
If there is a seat belt, keep it
Keep the aisles of the bus clear
Help keep the bus clean by
keeping waste paper off the floor
If you are using a cell phone,
use it appropriately so that it does not create a disturbance for the
driver or other students
of misbehavior on the bus and at bus stops are serious because they can impact student safety and well-being. Discipline ranges from warning to
suspension. A student who
commits a major offense will be suspended from riding the bus. The length of
the suspension will depend on the severity of the offense. For each
offense, a student receives a School Bus Incident Warning Report. A copy will
be sent to the parent/guardian. When a student receives several Incident Reports, this will result in suspension of three to 30 days, or for the
remainder of the school year, depending on the offense.
