Bus Information

With safety being a priority consideration, bus stops are located as conveniently as possible for those using the bus.  Children should not be at the scheduled bus stop more than ten (10) minutes before bus arrival.  If a child misses the bus, parents are responsible for getting the child to school.  If you have any problems, call the bus transportation supervisor at 967-6150 or Tapteal’s office at 967-6350 or 967-6351. 

Buses will be carrying capacity loads; therefore, we discourage additional passengers.  If a child wishes to ride another bus, (other than the one he/she is assigned to) we must have a written note from home which must also be endorsed by the school office.  

Appropriate behavior at bus stops and on the bus is expected of all students who ride the bus.  The bus driver has the right to deny bus-riding privileges to any student who does not follow these rules:

Students should:

  1. Line up and be orderly while waiting at the bus stop.
  2. Arrive on time at the bus stop.
  3. Arrive at the bus stop no more than 10 minutes before the bus arrives.
  4. Be courteous to the bus driver and fellow students.
  5. Comply promptly with all requests of the bus driver.
  6. Remain seated while the bus is moving.
  7. Not do any physical damage to the bus.
