The following are guidelines to help you and your child understand what will be expected while we transport to and from the bus stop and school.
Bus Stop Pick Up: Your child is expected to be at the bus stop at least 5 minutes before the scheduled pick up time. Once the bus driver deactivates the stop arm and starts moving the bus, the bus cannot stop. Also, the driver cannot wait for missing students that may be running late as other stops are expecting the bus to be on time for their pickup. It is an important life lesson in preparing your child to be on time when they enter the workforce, etc. No eating, taking medications, suckers, chewing gum, nor any drinks except water are permitted on the bus. Your child needs to finish his or her breakfast before getting to the bus stop in the morning, and all snacks need to be kept in backpacks and carry-ons.
No glass is allowed on the bus at any time!
Riding the school bus is a privilege and continually disobeying the rules of the bus can lead to a period of suspension or total expulsion depending on the severity of the infraction.
A bus agreement must be on file with the Business Department for each child participating in the bus service. If you have any questions regarding the bus please email Donna Maddox at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 602-938-5517 ext. 105.
