Imporant Transportation Information

What If My Child Gets On the Wrong Bus?

From time to time, your children will make a mistake and get on the wrong bus at the end of the school day.  Please tell your child not to panic and never get off the bus at the wrong stop.  All they need to do is tell the bus driver and he/she will contact the school.

What if School Closes Early Due to Bad Weather or an Emergency?

The district will message information to parents if buses are unable to run due to bad weather or other emergencies.
We suggest that you make sure your child knows what to do if he/she arrives home unexpectedly and you're not there.

Does the District Conduct Bus Evacuation Drills?

Consistent with existing state regulations, the District transportation staff will provide annual bus evacuation training for all students.  Even if your child may not ride the bus to and from school each day, they will more than likely go on a field trip where they will ride the bus.  Therefore, all students will be taught the proper procedures for emergency bus evacuation.

Walking To and From Bus Stop

While walking to and from bus stops:
  • Always walk on sidewalks if available.
  • If you must walk along the side of the road, stay well away from the roadway itself and always try to walk against oncoming traffic.
  • When crossing streets, always use a crosswalk, if available, and stop, look and listen before crossing.
  • Obey all traffic signals.
  • Never talk to or accept a ride from a stranger.
  • Go directly to and from the bus stop.
  • Plan the safest route with the fewest streets to cross.
  • Do not run out in the street between parked cars or shrubbery.
  • Leave home early enough so you do not have to run to catch your bus.

Student Conduct at School Bus Loading Zones and Bus Stops

Students are expected to:
  • Stand in a line facing traffic so you can see the approaching vehicles.
  • Stand back at least 12 feet from where the bus will stop.
  • Do not approach the bus until the driver has come to a full stop and opened the door.
  • Never go under any bus to retrieve something you have dropped, instead, ask the driver for assistance.
  • Destroying property, playing in or running on the street, or participating in any type of horseplay at a bus stop is dangerous and prohibited.
  • When waiting to load or unload the bus, students are the direct responsibility of the driver, and students must follow the driver's instructions.
  • School buses can only stop at designated bus stops.  If you miss the bus, have your parent or guardian take you to school.  Never run after your bus if you miss it.
