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.

At the Bus Stop --

  • Be at your bus stop 5 minutes ahead of time.
  • Do not play in the street while waiting for the bus.
  • Stand back from the curb.
  • Do not run to or from the bus.
  • Wait for the driver's signal before crossing.
  • Do not cross the street behind the school bus.
  • Look both ways before crossing the road.
  • Remain 10 large steps (at least ten feet) away from the front of the bus so the driver can see you.
  • Do not crawl nor reach under a school bus to retrieve something underneath it.

On the Bus --

  • Observe the same conduct required in the classroom as outlined in your Student Handbook.
  • Cooperate with the bus driver.
  • Remain seated for the entire ride.
  • Keep head, hands and feet inside the bus.
  • Talk quietly so everyone can hear instructions from the bus driver.
  • Do not eat or drink on the bus.
  • Do not throw objects into or out of the bus.

Remember --

  • The bus driver is authorized to assign seats.
  • Rear exit doors are only to be used in emergencies.
  • Violators of rules will be reported to the principal and misbehavior may result in the loss of transportation privileges.
  • Students who wish to go home with a friend on a bus not regularly assigned are required to obtain prior approval from their school by presenting notes from parents of both students to the office.
  • Neither the School District nor the transportation company is responsible for lost or stolen articles.
