Routing of Buses: Policy

Kindergarten children will be picked up in the morning and dropped off in the afternoon at either their neighborhood bus stop or their individual homes, wherever is most feasible. An adult must be at present at pick up and drop off.  If an adult is not present at drop off, the child will be returned to school.

The School Department will make every effort to ensure that no student has to walk more than one-half (0.5) mile in order to board a bus.

Buses will be routed to transport students to and from their homes or the bus stop nearest their home. Buses will not be routed to specifically accommodate picking up or dropping off students at locations other than their homes or nearest bus stops.

Each child is eligible for one seat on one bus.  If you require a child to be picked up and dropped off at an additional location requiring a second bus, you will need to purchase a second seat at regular price. 

Parents should not expect buses to operate over roads that are not properly maintained, on private lanes or driveways, or on dead ends or cul-du-sacs. School buses are not permitted to back up in order to make a turn around.
