Bus Operator Identification

In the event of an operator change in the route, you and your student can identify the school bus operator by their district issued ID.

In the Event of Mechanical Failure

The district will work diligently on proving the operator with another bus as quickly as possible. We will send out a mass message to our bus rider’s explaining the delay in service and provide updates on the ETA. The transportation department will notify the school so that breakfast can be held for the students upon their arrival.

Bus Danger Zones

Loading and unloading the bus is the most dangerous part of transportation. The area surrounding the bus is considered a DANGER ZONE due to the many blind spots the students can be hard to see. We want to create awareness of these zones to keep our students safe. Please help us by:

● If your student misses the bus stop or the bus is already getting ready to depart the stop DO Not chase the bus and please do not allow your student to run along side the bus. Once the bus is moving the driver may not see your student, especially if it is dark outside.

● Crossing the street must be the last resort. If they have to cross make sure that all traffic has stopped on both sides of the road and have your student walk 10 feet in front of the bus so the driver can see them and they can see the driver.

● IF your student drops something they are not to pick it up. Tell them to let the driver know and follow their instructions.

● Stay with your child at the bus stop at until they are safely inside the bus

Bus Stop Safety

Arrive at the bus stop 5 min before pick up and remain on the sidewalk. Do not run around or jump off curbs. Stand in a safe distance away from the street and be sure to be visible as the Bus Operator approaches the stop. Wait for the bus to come to a complete stop and the bus operator gives the signal that it is ok to start loading the bus. Once on the bus proceed slowly to your designated seat.

Discipline

We expect all students to follow the same rules as they would inside their classroom as well as the school bus specific rules. The transportation coordinator will administer discipline procedures with the assistance of the driver.

Field Trips

The purpose of our field trips is for our students to gain hands on experience with their education. They are fun and they provide an out of classroom environment. All rules of the classroom must be followed and the student chaperone ratio must be10:1. If space allows, the chaperones may accompany the students on the bus. All chaperones must undergo a background check and be cleared by the schools officials to join the field trip. Please get with the teacher or the friendly front desk receptionist for the steps on having a background check done.

Parents Responsibility

Discuss with your students all rules regarding the school bus. Explain the dangers of the danger zones, crossing the street and what to do if they drop an item.
