All bus riders must have a transportation application on file. Each rider is provided a Bus Rider’s Handbook. The handbook is designed to help provide a safe and enjoyable experience for children and adults who ride school buses. Parents should take time to read and discuss the materials in this handbook with their children. Riding a school bus is a privilege provided by the school district and should be treated as such. Student information cards are to be completed and turned in to the driver within three days.

General Safety Rules

Obey the instructions of the bus driver. At no time will a student act toward or address comments to a bus driver in a disrespectful manner, or refuse to cooperate with the driver.
Board and leave the bus at designated stops only. Only students who are eligible to ride may be transported and must ride their assigned bus. No guest riders. Do not ask to ride home on another bus with a friend. It is the responsibility of the parent to provide transportation to school if a child misses the bus.

Procedures for Waiting for the Bus


Be at your bus stop five minutes before scheduled pick-up time. Driver will not wait or honk. Stand on the sidewalk or back from the roadway while waiting for the bus. When the bus approaches, form a line and be prepared to load immediately. Stand clear of the bus until it comes to a complete stop. If you miss the bus go home immediately.
