Transporting children is a shared responsibility between home and school. The district is responsible for children once they board the bus. Families are responsible for the safety and supervision of their children to and from the designated stop as well as while they are waiting for school transportation. Students must be at their bus stop location at least 5 minutes prior to bus arrival time. Consistency in your child’s bus stop location is extremely important for their safety. The district also asks the parents reinforce with their children the importance of obeying the bus rules. Such rules ensure the safety and welfare of all young riders. If a child repeatedly violates these rules, thus jeopardizing everyone's safety, the student may ultimately be denied the privilege of riding the bus. Thus, parents support for behaving appropriately in transit is essential. If you have any problem or concern related to the bus, you are encouraged to write the driver a note or to phoneto reach the bus garage. Please try not to interrupt the bus schedule by talking directly with the driver while he or she is on the route.
