School bus safety for parents and students

  • All students are expected to behave in a safe and appropriate manner at the bus stop and while on the bus. They are to remain seated at all times and talk quietly.
  • Students are not permitted to change school buses, nor are parents allowed to take the bus with their child.
  • If problems arise during the year, parents must inform the office. They are NOT to deal with the bus driver or other students directly.

What if I want to pick up my child after school?

  • If parents wish to make alternative arrangements for their child to go home, they are asked to write a letter to that effect to be presented to the principal for approval and signature at the start of the day.
