2022-23 Bus Guidelines:

  • Parents should review the symptom screener and keep children home if they are experiencing ANY symptoms.

  • Students are to board the bus and head towards the rear of the bus, taking an open row and sliding towards the window. Additional students may leave the middle seat open and sit towards the aisle if all rows are occupied.

  • Siblings are asked to sit together when possible.

  • Seats may be assigned by School District Personnel.

 

RULES AND REGULATIONS:

  • A bus will not stop if students are not present.

  • Due to time constraints, buses will not return to a bus stop when students miss the bus or an adult (when required) is not present to receive the student. Students will be returned to their home school and parents/guardians will need to pick up their child from the school. The bus will not return.

  • Changes to bus routes require a minimum of 3 working days to be implemented.
