Morning and/or afternoon bus service to specific areas is available. Instructions for enrolling and a map showing the areas are distributed with the registration packet. Once the routes are set, families who have signed up will be notified of the pick-up time and place. Routes may change annually. Parents may review the routes and stops in the School Office.
The fee for bus service depends on the distance between your child’s stop and the school. Payment can be included with tuition. If occasional emergency service is needed, you may purchase a bus pass for the day at the School Office. The guideline for emergency use is a maximum of twice a month. (A bus pass is $2.00 for one way and requires a note from you explaining what date your child will be riding, with whom, and what stop he/she will use.)
At some time during the school year, every student will ride the bus whether on a field trip or as a daily rider. Consequently, all students are required to study and follow rules and procedures set forth in the Parent/Student Handbook. The school has behavioral expectations for each student riding the bus. To ensure the safety of each child, these expectations are monitored. When the behavior of a student is inappropriate, the driver immediately communicates with the principal and appropriate consequences are determined.
Families are responsible for supervising students at the bus stop. Many families share this responsibility or arrange for an older student to assist.
Further information on the bus service can be obtained in the Parent/Student Handbook (issued in August) or in the School Office.
