Policy Change for Grade 3 and Under Bus Students

ATTENTION ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PARENTS

 

According to State Transportation Policy 4336, 4.1.2

“Parents are responsible for providing supervision for ALL kindergarten through 3rd grade students at all bus stops until the bus arrives for both pickup and delivery.”

This new policy voids our old policy which said through 2nd grade. Also, you can no longer write a note giving your child permission to be alone at the bus stop.

If a parent cannot be physically present at the bus stop, then it is their responsibility to ensure supervision is provided. The parent can designate a person to act in their place to assist the child. It shall be up to the parent to determine who that will be.
