Bus Rules

RIDING THE BUS IS A PRIVILEGE
It is the right of every student being transported to receive this service in the safest possible manner. In order to insure this, it is necessary for all students to know, and to follow the rules and regulations set forth by the State and the local Board of Education. Parents of transported students are urged to help their children understand the importance of these rules as they relate to their personal safety. Because of an overriding concern to provide safe transportation for pupils, the school district may deny, suspend, or revoke transportation privileges to individual pupils, groups of pupils, or an entire bus for continued disorderly conduct, persistent refusal to submit to the authority of the bus driver, or violation of the rules and regulations of Unified School District 258 and/or the School Laws of the State of Kansas. When such action becomes necessary, the district will notify parents of the pupils involved of the impending suspension of service.

  1. No improper boarding or departing procedures or failure to be at bus stop on time. Students are encouraged to arrive at the bus stop 5 minutes prior to the scheduled stop time.
