• photo of student on bus with driver Bus Rules

    The Transportation Department staff would like to provide the following information for the parents of students who use school bus service during the year. Our goal is to provide a safe and timely service to students to help improve their educational day.

    Students are expected to follow acceptable behaviors while waiting for or riding the bus. Our continuing goal is to reduce the number of safety hazards on the bus. Students create safety hazards by distracting the driver and thus endangering the lives of other bus riders. By reducing the number of safety hazards, your student will be able to ride the bus in the safest environment possible.

    We believe in teaching children to respect the rights of others through responsible thinking. When students follow the behavior expectations, everyone receives the reward of safe transportation. All students have the responsibility to help maintain a safe transportation system and are expected to follow the bus behavior guidelines.

     

    During the COVID pandemic, students must wear a cloth face covering or mask at all times while on the bus.  In addition, students must sit in their assigned seat at all time while riding the bus. 

     

    Common Expectations for Bus Behavior

     

    • Maintain a safe environment on the bus
      • Board the bus, take your assigned seat, and stay seated.
