An important part of providing safe transportation is appropriate and safe behavior while riding the school bus. To help ensure a safe and pleasant ride each student should be familiar with the bus riding rules, expectations, and consequences for infractions. We ask you to review the following rules and information with your child to help us establish expectations and appropriate behavior.
