Parents Are Advised To Stress Safety And Proper Behavior On The School Bus And At The Bus Stop.

Good conduct is necessary for the safety and welfare of all passengers. The bus driver is responsible for maintaining order on the school bus. Cooperation from all students is expected. At the beginning of the school year, a list of rules for proper conduct is distributed. Students who are found to be in violation of the prescribed rules and regulations are subject to disciplinary action by the building principal or designee.
