Q: What is the Visible Parent Program?
A: All Students in JK or SK require a parent/guardian to accompany them to and from the bus stop. This is for the safety of your child.

Q: Can I request that the bus driver change my stop time, bus stop or part of the route?

A driver cannot and will not authorize requests and could be subject to disciplinary action should this occur. Please do not put your driver in this situation. All requests should be made through the school on a F11 Student Transportation Form.

A: No, should a student miss the bus the parent/guardian is responsible to drive the student to school and not to the next bus stop.

Q: If my child is having trouble with other students on the bus, who should I contact?
A: The school bus is considered an extension of the classroom where students are responsible and accountable for their actions. Any concerns should be discussed with your child’s school principal.

A: Children cannot eat on the bus because of the potential for severe allergic reactions of other students and the danger of choking.
