School Bus Conduct
Behavior that distracts the bus or van driver and jeopardizes passenger safety is not permitted. Students who ride a bus or van are expected to act in a courteous, respectful manner that helps to ensure a safe ride for everyone. Parents are urged to review these transportation rules with their children.
