  • Bus Procedures and Code of Conduct

    Regular Riders Not Riding the Afternoon/Activity Bus
    If you have a change to your afternoon plans and do not want your child to ride the bus, please contact your Division Administrative Assistant by phone by 12pm on the day of the change. For PS-MS, please let the Administrative Assistant know if your child should be sent to carpool or after-school care. The Division Administrative will ensure that your child (grades 6-12) or their teacher (grades EL-5) is notified.

    Missing the Bus
    In the morning, the bus will leave promptly at the times stated. Please be on time.

    For afternoon and activity bus pickup, Middle School and Upper School students should arrive promptly at the Lower School carpool circle. In the event that the student does not arrive on time to get on the afternoon (3:30) bus, the student may stay in afterschool care until the activity (6:15) bus departs (if space allows) or the parents may pick the student up from school. Middle School and Upper School students should notify the Main Building Receptionist that they missed the bus.

    In the event that the student does not arrive on time to get on the activity (6:15) bus, someone must come to pick the student up from school.

    Parent Late at Pick-Up
    Please make every effort to arrive timely to pick your student up from the bus stop.

    Riders will not be left alone at a pick-up.
    Parents may complete a Parent Permission Authorization Form so that another designated adult can pick-up a rider. If a parent or a designated adult is not at the drop-off location, riders will be retained on the bus and may be picked up at any subsequent stop.

    For the Afternoon (3:30) route, if the student has not been picked up after all stops are complete, the student will be returned to school and may be picked up at school or picked up during the Activity Bus (6:15) route by a parent or designated adult.

    For the Activity (6:15) route, if the student has not been picked up by the final stop, the bus driver will wait at the final stop until a parent or a designated adult arrives.
