School Bus Safety Week!
October 21-25, 2019
Wednesday, October 23rd 2019 is National School Bus Driver Appreciation Day. It’s a great opportunity to thank your bus driver for keeping the bus ride safe!
Fog and Reduced Visibility
If a bus driver cannot safely stop to make a pick-up/drop off due to poor visibility, the driver has the discretion not to make the stop. This is for the safety of your student, students already on the bus, and other motorists.
When stops can’t be made, the Consortium may attempt to contact the parent/guardian, or use a text message alert. In some cases we may not be able to notify parents.
Please be reminded that parents are responsible for the safety and conduct of students to/from and at the bus stop, including having a back up plan in case the stop cannot be made.
For more details please reference Procedure 110.
Why can’t my child eat on the bus?
Eating and drinking on the bus are not allowed because doing so can create serious and potentially life-threatening safety hazards, including choking and the severe allergic reaction of other students.
School buses are carrying our future and we all share the responsibility of keeping our kids safe. Please make your children aware that eating and drinking are not allowed on the bus.
