Student Handbook Bus Rules

Bus Rules

  1. Students are to follow these rules:
  2. Be courteous, use no profane language or gestures.
  3. Keep the bus clean by putting all papers, cans, and other trash in the proper container.
  4.  No glass bottles are allowed.
  5.  No alcoholic or non-alcoholic brew is allowed.
  6. Cooperate with the driver at all times.
  7. No smoking or smokeless tobacco products.
  8. Do not destroy or vandalize property or endanger anyone’s safety.
  9. Remain seated at all times.
  10.  Keep head, hands, and feet inside the bus.
  11. The bus driver may assign seats and set any other rules as needed.
  12.  For your safety and the safety of others, do not distract the driver for misbehavior.

            If a student misbehaves on the bus the penalty is at the discretion of the principal depending on the circumstances.  It may include removal from the bus for one to ten days or permanent removal from the bus by a formal hearing.  Serious misbehavior on the bus may also be the cause for punishment up to and including suspension or expulsion from school.  The parents will be contacted and the discipline event will be documented on the students discipline record through Infinite Campus. Parents will be contacted for another action requiring a second report. A second violation may result in the student being suspended from riding the bus for a period of time. It will then become the parent's responsibility and expense to get the child to school.
