Riding the Bus
In order that the bus driver is able to focus on safe driving, students are expected to:
- Remain seated at all times.
- Visit quietly in normal talking voices; no yelling or shouting.
- Follow the driver’s instructions.
- Wear their seatbelts.
Bus drivers will be advising students about rules regarding assigned seating, opening / closing windows and food on the bus. Riding the bus is part of school so the same expectations about behavior and respect apply while students are riding the bus. Each day, bus attendance is taken on all buses as part of a safety plan. If students leave school during the day, parents are asked to ensure that their child has been signed out in the office so we know they are safe.
Space is limited on many of our buses. Only registered bus students may ride on the bus and they may only ride on their own bus. Extra passengers are not allowed to ride home with students on the bus. On rare occasions, students may need to go home with another student. Parents must make arrangements with the bus drivers and then inform the school via a written note.
