Bus Transportation

***Bus Transportation for after school activities unrelated to school must have prior approval from administration one day in advance.  This will allow us to ensure that there is room on the bus for additional passenger(s).

We are concerned for the safety of each students who rides the bus. It is important that home and school work together to make certain that all children know and follow school bus safety rules.

Rules for School Bus Safety

Rules for Bus Safety are emphasized at school and each bus driver insists on the cooperation of each rider.  Please review these rules with your child at home.

  2. Students may not delay the bus schedule while loading/unloading at school and/or at home.

  3. Fighting, smoking, eating, loud talking, horseplay, selling items, using profanity or refusing to obey school authorities or a bus driver while waiting for, riding or leaving a school bus will not be tolerated.

  4. Students may not change seats during the bus trip unless directed to do so by the bus driver.

  5. Students must meet the bus at the designated stop and may not get off at any unassigned stop without permission from the office.
