Hello ! Welcome to the Transportation page!
By trying to accommodate the personal needs of all families in our community, some schools have allowed bus passes to be issued for transportation changes due to child care, parties, and group work on school projects, sleepovers, “play dates” and private lessons. Since August 2006, elementary school administrators along with the transportation department have no longer approved this practice.
Safety is our number one priority in providing bus transportation, and the practice of routinely issuing bus passes causes inconsistency and confusion for everyone, the student, the school staff, the driver and even the parent.
Students are expected to learn their stop, understand their driver’s expectations, and practice safe riding, walking and waiting habits as they travel to and from school at their assigned stop. Drivers need to establish safe, orderly and respectful routines that include knowing their students and developing positive relationships with them.
Please cooperate with the school and make car transportation arrangements whenever your child needs to be taken to any location other than their regular assigned afternoon bus stop. We appreciate your support.
