FAQ

1)       Q Why don’t buses have seat belts?

A According to extensive studies done by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the current construction standard of bus seating known as compartmentalization provides a very strong safety barrier for bus passengers. Compartmentalization refers to the material and design of bus seats, so constructed to provide maximum seating safety inside a school bus. The principle is similar to an egg carton – specifically designed to transport something fragile as safely as possible.

2)       Q Can my child lose their bus privileges?

A Absolutely. Please refer to Rules and Regulations link.

3)      Q How do I enroll my child for school transportation?

A Contact the Transportation Office at 527-4116, between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 5:00 pm. Terri or Hannah would be happy to help you.

4)      Q My child is having problems on the bus. What should I do?

A Contact the Transportation Office to discuss the problem. Communication between this office and home are very important. If the issue cannot be resolved during a telephone conversation, we will gladly arrange a meeting between parents, bus rider(s), Transportation Supervisors and the bus driver.

Parents and children are always welcome to come the “Bus Barn” to meet the drivers and staff at any time. A visit to the Transportation Office and a tour on the bus can help calm any anxiety new riders have.
