Student safety while riding school busses is a shared responsibility between students, parents, bus drivers, and school officials. Since riding a school bus is a privilege, students are required to follow rules. Failing to cooperate may result in parents having to provide transportation.  Cameras are in operation on busses for safety purposes.
 
  • Ride only the bus to which you are assigned. Board and get off at your designated stop. (In extreme emergencies, only the principal may authorize a change.)
  • Wait quietly at the bus stop, off the road, and away from traffic
  • Board busses in an orderly fashion and quickly select or proceed to your assigned seat. Bus seats are designed for three (3) students to a seat. Do not reserve seats for friends.
  • Talk quietly so the driver is able to hear traffic sounds. Talking is not permitted when the bus is at a railroad crossing.
  • Get permission before opening windows and keep your hands, head, books, and other articles inside the bus.
  • Stay seated at all times and stand only when the bus comes to a complete stop.
  • Keep the aisles clear.
  • Do not hit or push other students.
  • Smoking is prohibited.
  • Students should arrive at the bus stop at least 5 minutes before the scheduled arrival for the bus.
  • Arrival times of the bus may vary according to weather and traffic conditions.
  • Thank you for your cooperation!!
