BUS RIDING PRIVILEGES
Students riding school buses will be expected to follow all bus rules as outlined by the bus driver. As bus riding is a privilege, any student guilty of disobeying the rules may be suspended from bus riding privileges for a period of time to be determined by the principal. (A third bus infraction in one semester can result in loss of bus riding privilege.) Parent notes with principal approval are required for changes in bus riding schedules.
