|Bus Information & Rules|
SAFETY FREEZE:Students will be allowed their home address as a stop and one other bus stop (day care or another parent/guardian address) for the entire year. This information must be furnished to the Transportation Department via the Child Care form August 23, 2012. This form will be sent home in the back to school newsletter. This form is available at the Transportation Office or download HERE.
There will be safety freeze from August 23, 2012 through September 14, 2012. During that time, no busing changes will be allowed. In addition, the Transportation Department/Bus Drivers will not accept notes or phone calls from students or parents for any alternate bus stop requests that are not on file with the Transportation Department.
BUS STOP:Parents are responsible for the safety of their child while going to or from the school bus stop and while waiting for the bus. You should have your child at the designated bus stop at least ten minutes prior to the scheduled pick-up time.
Students are expected to conduct themselves in a proper manner while at the school bus stops. The school district does not enter into disputes involving parents and/or students concerning matters that take place prior to the student boarding the school bus, or after the student has disembarked from the bus on their way home.
Reminder to Parents:
Yellow lights on the bus: the bus is about to make a stop;
please slow down.
Red lights on the bus: the bus has stopped and the door is open;
TRANSPORTATION SCHEDULE:Included in this mailing is a letter with the transportation schedule for your student(s). If you feel the information is incorrect, please do not hesitate to contact the office and confirm time and bus stop location. If you live out of the district you must call the office and let us know which bus stop your child will be using.
BUS RULES:The Wayland Union School District wants to maintain a safe and pleasant bus riding experience for all students. A good atmosphere while riding on the bus is conductive to the education program and required for school bus safety.
To accomplish this objective, the Transportation Department will enforce strong discipline. The school bus is an extension of the classroom, therefore, the same behaviors are expected. Failure to observe the bus rules will interrupt a student’s bus privileges.
Anything that happens on the bus to divert the driver’s attention immediately puts the safety of the children in jeopardy. Therefore, all students riding the buses must conduct themselves in an orderly manner. The Transportation Department would appreciate each parent taking the time to review the following bus safety rules with their children:
1. Arrive at the bus stop at least 10 minutes prior to the scheduled time.
2. Obey the bus driver’s directions the first time it is given.
3. Do not eat or drink on the bus.
4. Help keep the bus clean
5. Cooperate with the bus driver. The bus driver will assign seats.
6. Stay in your seat at all times while riding the bus.
7. Keep head, hands and feet inside the bus at all times.
8. Be courteous and respectful of others.
In addition, the use of profane and abusive language or obscene gestures will not be tolerated. Such occurrences will be cause for immediate suspension of bus privileges for up to 10 days. Suspension of bus privileges includes all Wayland Union buses for the entire time of suspension. We are certain everyone understands the necessity of good student behavior and respect while aboard school vehicles. Thank you for your cooperation.
INCLEMENT WEATHER:If it becomes necessary when the gravel roads are iced over, we will implement “paved roads only”.
Items not permitted in the classroom are not permitted on the bus. No athletic balls, skateboards, skis, golf clubs, etc. are allowed on the bus.
