Student Rules for Riding the School Bus

With just a little over a month left until the 2014-15 School Year starts, the district wants to remind students and their parents of behavior expectations when riding the school bus to and from school. These rules are designed to insure safety of all students and school bus personnel during transport to and from school.

Riding the bus to school is a privilege and as such, there are expectations that students will respect themselves, each other, the bus driver and district and student property during transport to and from school.

Please note that there is a form at the bottom of the rules that parents are asked to read, sign and return to the students' bus drivers within five days of the start of school.
