As parents, you are an important part of the total safety awareness for students who travel to and from school on our buses.

Here's how you can help maintain safe bus stop procedures:

  • Go with your children to the bus stop.
  • Tell your children to walk in groups, if possible.
  • Regardless of weather conditions, students must be standing at the designated stop 5 minutes prior to the bus’s scheduled arrival.
  • If anything is dropped during loading or unloading the bus, children should tell the bus driver, never attempt to retrieve the item themselves.
  • When your child has to cross the street to get on or off the bus, the driver will advise your child when it is safe to cross in front of the bus. Your child is taught the first day of school to watch for the driver to lower their hand.
  • Students in Ohio may be assigned to a bus stop up to ½ mile from their home and we encourage parents to accompany their child to the bus stop whenever possible. 
  • If a child breaks the bus rules consequence for inappropriate behavior on the bus depends on the infraction. Consequences may range from driver/student conference, change of seating, to removal from the bus. In situations where the infraction is significant, drivers will write disciplinary referrals and refer to the appropriate grade level administrator.
