The school provides bussing for all our students. Because of the large area we cover, it is important to us to try and keep the time a student spends on the bus to a reasonable amount. For this reason, some families are required to drive their student to a bus pick up point.
Riding on the buses is a privilege. Students who abuse this privilege will be subject to discipline procedures, including suspension of bus riding privileges if necessary.
The school has a Transportation Policy which includes a student Code of Conduct for the buses.
Transportation will be finalized by the middle of August. Either the bus driver or a committee member will contact students the week before school starts to confirm the time and place they will be picked up and dropped off.
Code of Conduct
Students travelling on the bus are expected to abide by the following guidelines:
- Respect and obey the bus driver.
- Respect each individual who is riding the bus
- Maintain an appropriate noise level during all interactions – no loud noises.
- Remain in seat facing forward at all times.
- Keep feet and knees off of the seats and the backs of seats.
- No food, drink or gum will be consumed on the bus.
- Place all garbage in appropriate containers.
- Keep arms and head inside the vehicle at all times.
- No throwing of objects in or out of the bus.
- No smoking.
- No obscene language.
- No fighting.
- Passengers are financially responsible for any damage to their assigned seat on the bus.
- Cell phones and gameboys are permitted on the bus, but must not be a distraction to the driver or other students. The driver has the right to disallow the use of cell phones or gameboys if they become distracting.
Riding the bus is a privilege! This privilege can be withdrawn.
