Bus & Car Riders

Bus Rules

If your child is to leave school on a bus other than the one normally ridden or is riding the same bus but must get off at a different location, she/ he must have written permission from a parent/ guardian. Office personnel will sign this letter of permission. It must then be presented to the driver as the student boards the bus.

School officials may impose specific rules and regulations for students to follow in riding school buses. The following rules apply as part of, and in addition to, any bus rules and regulations adopted by the school.

  • Stay in seats, facing forward
  • Obey bus rules
  • Listen and obey the driver
  • Keep ailes clear of feet, books, bags, etc.
  • Keep buses free of litter
  • Keep conversations at a low volume

  • Bus drivers may impose rules specific to their own bus
