At the bus stop, students are expected to:

  • Arrive five minutes before the scheduled time.
  • Maintain an orderly line in preparation to board the bus promptly, without shoving or pushing.
  • Stay out of the roadway.
  • Be considerate of nearby yards, driveways, houses, buildings, and private property.
  • Move toward the bus only after it stops and the driver has signaled that it is safe.

On the bus, students are expected to:

  • Behave appropriately, just as if they were in a classroom.
  • Keep the aisle and emergency door clear of obstructions.
  • Keep their arms, feet, and head inside the bus at all times.
  • Be seated and make room for others to sit as well. Once ridership has been adjusted at the beginning of the school year, standing is not permitted.
  • Discard trash in appropriate containers.
