Bus Service at Valley Creek School
Riding an alternate bus – From time to time, student’s request to ride to a friend’s home on an alternate bus; this can be arranged, provided there is room on the bus, and both students have a bus pass. To ensure that students are not disappointed, please make sure that you have contacted the office to make these arrangements. It is preferable that these arrangements be made for babysitting or daycare issues only. Making a “play date” is acceptable on an occasional basis.
Bus Attendance - We are responsible for ensuring that all students in Grades 4 - 6 get on the bus at the end of the day. The office requires a phone call or written note to excuse students from the ride home or to allow them to get off the bus at a different stop. Bus monitors take attendance every day before the bus departs. Be sure to notify the school ahead of time if your child will not be taking the bus home. It is expected that students who are participating in after school activities will notify the school office if they will not be on the bus. It is assumed that Grade 7 - 9 students who are not on the bus at the end of the day have parent permission to be excused.
