Safety and Bus Behavior
Students transported, in the interest of safety, must observe rules of good behavior, and be considerate of others. They must be seated immediately and remain seated while the vehicle is in motion. Students misbehaving and failing to abide by regulations may be denied the privilege of riding on school buses either temporarily or permanently.
The maximum walking distances to a prescribed point of embarkation are the following: (1) kindergarten, one-half mile; (2) elementary schools, one mile; (3) middle school, one and one-half mile; (4) high school, two miles. It is the Board of Education’s firm belief that parents/guardians are responsible for ensuring proper supervision of their children as they walk to and from bus stops and while waiting for the bus at such stops. Such supervision extends to daycare operators and other non-parental guardians providing oversight to children. This belief also includes, but is not limited to, cases where supervision may be necessary to gain access to a sidewalk located on the opposite side of the street as a child walks to a bus stop.
