Bus Routes 2020 - 2021

Please continue to check the route times as they may change. Due to Covid 19 we will be doing staggered drop off and pick ups at the schools. To start the year bus drivers have been advised to not unload if another bus is unloading when they arrive at the school. They will wait until students are clear and then unload their bus. As we continue in the year we will adjust the bus routes to ensure staggered drop off times at the schools.  Thank You.

School Bus Safety

The Board of Trustees provides for and defrays the cost of the conveyance to and from any school in the school district for students residing a considerable distance from the school. Riding the school bus is considered a privilege, not a right. We are a transportation service and as such are required to adhere to restrictions governing passenger compartment luggage as laid out in the Motor Vehicle and Commercial Vehicle Acts. As a result, there are certain items, which are not allowed on the bus. Some of these are: skis, hockey sticks, baseball bats, skate boards, etc. Your driver determines what is safe.

In cold winter conditions, every effort will be made to provide transportation to and from school. Buses will endeavor to continue on schedule as long as it is safe to do so, considering the temperature, road conditions, etc. Should any run be canceled or delayed, notification will be given via Facebook, the School District Website, School Messenger messaging service and the local radio stations as soon as possible.

In cold weather conditions, for the safety and comfort of your child, please ensure that they are dressed accordingly. Should any child wish to travel on a regular bus run to a friend’s residence for a visit, sleep over, birthday party, etc., contacting your local bus garage is required.

These rules apply to all students traveling to and from school by school bus:

  1. The driver is in charge!
  2. Follow directions the first time they are given.
  3. Keep hands, feet and other objects to yourself.
  4. Talk quietly, using appropriate language.
  5. Smoking, drugs, and alcohol are prohibited.
  6. Unregistered students are not allowed on the bus without written permission.

Safety rules to observe when your child boards or gets off the bus:

Always – wait for the driver’s signal to proceed before crossing any roadway.
Always – cross in front of the bus, never go behind it.
Always – look both ways before crossing the road.
Always – think safety.

We would like to ask you, as a parent, to go over these rules with your child and emphasize the importance of good behavior.
