|SCHOOL BUS RULES|
The bus driver is the authority on the bus and safety is our first priority. It is the student's responsibility to:
Keep the aisles clear.
Keep the bus clean.
Be on time for the bus in the morning (10 minutes before bus arrives).
Do not chase the bus down if you are late to your bus stop.
Stand a safe distance away from the road.
Line up to board the bus when the bus is approaching without crowding
Approach the bus only when the bus driver has motioned you to do so.
Always use steps and handrail when boarding and leaving the bus.
Stay seated facing forward in assigned seat at all times.
Loud and vulgar language will not be tolerated.
Hands, arms, head and objects are not permitted through bus windows.
Throwing any objects out of the windows or inside the bus is prohibited.
Return windows to closed position if you open them.
Eating, drinking or chewing gum is not permitted on the bus.
Glass, tobacco, weapons, reptiles, animals or insects of any kind are NOT
permitted on the bus at any time.
Any damage to the bus will be the responsibility of the passenger.
Be respectful of all property surrounding the bus stop. Students who
damage school property or the property of other passengers will pay
for the damages.
The District's Policy regarding behavoir will also be adhered to on the
school bus at all times.
|BE AWARE OF THE SCHOOL BUS!|
If there is a school bus - there is precious cargo! Please be aware of children in the area when you see a school bus! Children sometimes do not pay attention to their surroundings - as we all know, if children are anything, they are unpredictable - a close call is one too many.
Students needing to ride a different bus or get off at a different bus stop are required to board the bus with a Bus Pass from the school office. This allows the school to know where the student is going and alert the driver to a new passenger. This procedure also applies to students who do not normally ride a bus. Students without a Bus Pass will not be permitted on the bus - no exceptions.NOTES FROM PARENT'S WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.
YELLOW AND RED LIGHTS ON A SCHOOL BUS|
!! YELLOW MEANS PREPARE TO STOP !!
The yellow lights on top of the school bus are to advise vehicles the bus is approaching a bus stop and is going to stop within 100 to 300 feet of activation. Traffic around the bus must prepare to stop at this point. This is NOT the time to speed up and go around the bus.
!! RED MEANS STOP !!
The red lights on top of the school bus and side stop arm are advising drivers that the bus is stopped and loading/unloading passengers. Traffic around the bus is required to stop. If a patrol officer observes a vehicle passing a stopped school bus with the red lights flashing and stop arm deployed, the driver of the vehicle will be cited.
