It is recommended that students riding the bus arrive at the bus stop 5 minutes before the scheduled bus stop time, to allow for slight variances in clocks.
In the morning, the bus will not leave a stop before the scheduled time. Once it arrives at the stop, and the door closes, it will not stop a second time. PLEASE do not chase after a school bus, as
this is a huge safety concern.
The afternoon drop off times are only approximate and if there are no riders for a stop, the bus will not stop there. Parents picking up their child at a bus stop should plan to arrive at least 10 minutes before the scheduled drop off time. Children, particularly the younger ones, will not be released from the bus if the driver feels there is a safety concern. At that time, attempts will be made to contact parents. If unsuccessful, the child will be taken back to his or her school. Please remember buses are allowed to stop only at designated bus stops.
You must submit to the students school as well as the Transportation Department three (3) names and their phone numbers of members approved to pick up the student. If a Kindergartner is walking with sibling(s) a Kindergarten waiver form must be filled out and signed by the parent and returned to the students school as well as the Transportation Department, before the student is allowed to walk home with their sibling.
In the case of inclement weather, the decision for a 2-hour delay or school cancellation will be made by 6:00 am. Please be patient with our school bus drivers and bus stop arrival times.
