Bus safety is a priority in our school district. Responsibility for conduct of students while they are waiting for the bus rests with the parents. When the student boards the bus, the school district assumes responsibility until the child leaves the bus at the end of the day. Bus drivers will make every effort to see that children behave on the bus. When a behavior incident arises, the driver will attempt to handle the problem. In the event the driver cannot correct the situation, the discipline problem will be reported to the building principal. When necessary, the parent will be involved. In certain situations where the child will not behave o the bus, it may be necessary for the child to be denied the privileged of riding the bus and the parent will then be responsible for transporting the child to school. We hope that this type of situation will be held to a bare minimum. To assist the school in assuring a safe ride to and from the building by reviewing these rules with their children.
