To ensure the safety of our students being transported on school buses, school guidelines have been established. It is a privilege to ride the bus. Students are expected to follow the rules. Suspension is a consequence of continued misbehavior. Parents are encouraged to call the school with transportation issues and refrain from directly communicating with the bus company, drivers, or classroom teachers. Students are to be at the bus stop 5 minutes before and after their scheduled pickup time. Students will load and unload at their assigned bus stop and ride their assigned bus. Students who miss the bus to or from school must make their own arrangements for transportation. Students must have parent permission and a bus pass to ride a different bus or get off at a different stop. The following are the student conduct guidelines as designated by our transportation provider for class III offenses (Please see the Student Conduct guidelines located in the front office for Class I, II and III definitions):
