NEED TO KNOW
Remember to give yourself extra time to get to school and through morning drop off when the roads conditions are not great. Even on the snowy winter mornings students are expected to be in class and ready to learn at 8:00 am. Students have three limited excused tardies per school year for traffic/road conditions. After three tardies due to traffic/weather have been exhausted, tardies due to traffic or road conditions will be unexcused.
- Stay out of the bus danger zones or blind spots for the driver.
- Remain seated and keep the aisles clear during the bus ride.
- Keep the noise level at a 1 or 2 and only use appropriate language.
- Do not eat or drink on the bus, as we want to be mindful of allergies of others.
- While at the bus stop, practice good behavior that is safe for everyone.
