School Bus Transportation

School bus safety is one of our major concerns. The following rules are for the protection of all students who ride a bus. Riding a bus is a privilege; therefore, it is important that the rules are followed so those students may retain this privilege. Please read the following rules carefully so that you and your child will know what is expected.
Students should follow these rules:
  • Be on time at the bus stop.
  • Stay back from the roadway when waiting for a bus.
  • Remain at the bus stop until the bus has come to a complete stop and the bus stop sign is extended.
  • Look in both directions and at bus driver’s signals before crossing the road.
  • Go quickly to your assigned seat and remain in that seat until disembarking.
  • Avoid loud talking, playing, and scuffling on the bus.
  • Keep hands, head, and feet inside the bus at all times.
  • Refrain from throwing objects both inside and outside the bus.
  • Refrain from cell phone use on the bus.
Throwing items, hitting/fighting, and gross insubordination to the driver will result in an immediate suspension from riding a bus. Safe transportation of students is a serious matter and parents are expected to know, cooperate, and communicate with their child’s bus driver.

Students are not to ride a bus other than their assigned bus or get off at any stop other than their designated stop without the written permission from the parent/guardian. Students who go home with each other must have written permission from both households. Permission will be granted only if there is space available. All notes from parents and/or guardians must be signed by the principal or principal’s designee. Students 3rd grade and under will not be allowed to depart the school bus without an adult present at the designated stop to receive the child, per WCPS Board recommendation.
