Please fill out one sheet for each student.
Bus arrival times may vary from 5-7 minutes. Drivers are not required to wait for students at the bus stop, or to sound the horn while students come out of their residence. Students must be at the stop before the bus arrives.
Students will not be able to ride home with any student not living in their home, even with a note of parental permission. Parents must designate one drop off and pick up location using the Bus Transportation Form above.Please be aware that wearing a seat belt on a bus that is equipped with seatbelts is not only school policy but also state law. Any student that chooses not to wear a seatbelt will be suspended following the 2nd write-up for that offense. Our top priority is your child's safety. Just like riding in a passenger car, school seat belts save lives.
