Safety of students is a major concern of parents and school staff alike. The safety of children cannot be overemphasized. Our rules for bicycle riders, walkers, and drivers are of primary importance in maintaining an accident free environment for everyone. We urge you to caution your child about safety to and from school, talking to strangers, and going directly home unless previous plans have been arranged.
At the beginning of the year, the way the student goes home will be recorded (car rider, bus rider, walker, bike rider, day care, etc.). The teacher must be notified through a written note from the parent if a change occurs, otherwise the student will be sent home the same way every day. (If using commercial day care, parents must also notify the center directly when other arrangements are made.)
1) Children are to be picked up on the car ramp only and our designated car tag must be displayed.
2) The driver should not leave his/her car unattended.
3) Please pull all the way down the car ramp to drop off or pick up your child.
4) Car riders are not picked up on the street behind the school.
All students walking to school must carefully observe safety rules and obey the crossing guard. Students are to cross the street only at the crosswalk with the guard. Students are to walk on sidewalks and follow planned, direct route home.
Students riding bikes to school will walk their bicycles to the bicycle parking area. The law requires all students riding bicycles to wear a helmet. Scooters, skateboards and skate shoes are not allowed on campus.
1) Parents are responsible for the behavior of their own children while at the bus stop.
2) No child may ride a bus other than the one assigned. If a child is not a regular bus rider, he/she may not ride a bus at any time.
3) The driver is in full charge of the bus and will assign students to specific seats on the bus.
4) Students must be seated and keep their arms and head inside the bus while it is moving.
5) Quiet conversation is permitted except when the bus driver signals for silence.
6) No eating or drinking is allowed on the bus.
7) No animals, glass items, helium filled balloons, or other potentially hazardous items may be taken on the bus.
8) Failure of any student to observe these rules and regulations will be reported by the driver to the school principal, who has the authority to suspend the student from riding the bus.
9) The principal or designee may suspend students from riding the bus for up to 10 days. Parents are responsible for transportation during a bus suspension.
