Picking-Up Bused Students
Parents and approved adults picking up students from the school who take the bus are asked to please MEET STUDENTS AT THE BUS LINEUP; this process allows teachers in charge to confirm whom students are going home with, to maintain safety. Please arrive at 3:35 in advance of the bell at 3:40 as we are not able to hold busses from leaving for parents who are running late.
Due to high call volume, please do not call the office at the end of the day to let us know you are picking them up from the bus.
Kindergarten Bus Safety
Buses Arriving at School
When buses arrive, students are greeted at the bus by a staff member who will walk the students to the Kindergarten entrance. Their teacher will pick them up at the entrance when the bell rings at 9:07 am or 12:50 pm for school to begin.
Kindergarten students are not allowed to walk to or from the bus stop unattended for the safety of your child. An adult must be there to wait with them at drop off and pick them up every day.
What if I am Late Picking Up my Child?
If the bus driver arrives at your child’s stop and no adult is present for pick up, the bus driver will keep the child on the bus and wait 5 minutes before proceeding to complete the rest of the bus route. At the end of the regular route, the bus driver will return to the child’s designated stop to see if someone has arrived. If no one has arrived, a call will be placed to Southland Transportation and Eugene Coste School and the child will brought back to the school for pick up.
