BUS STOP INFORMATION FOR 2016-2017
*THERE WILL BE NO CHANGES TAKEN FROM AUG. 10th-SEPT. 6th
We must have this time in order to prepare bus routes and mail out post cards. Bus routing must be completed in order to send out accurate information regarding pick up and drop off times and locations.
 
If you have moved over the summer, you must contact the building your child attends or Memorial Hall to change your child's address before changing it with the Bus Barn as we draw from the Student information system (DASL).
 
Alternate transportation plan forms must be filled out each year for each child in order for your child to be picked up and/or dropped off anywhere other than the bus stop closest to your home. If you child had a form in 2015-2016, and you have not turned in a new form for 2016-2017, your child will be placed on parent transport until a new alternate form is returned to the Bus Barn. If you had a form in for your child in 2015-2016 and you wish for them to get on and/or off the bus at home for the coming year, a new form will need to be filled out as well with this new information as your child is assigned to parent transport.
 
Your child's AM and PM stop may be at different locations but we will not accept schedules that vary from day to day or at a different house every other week. For instance, your child may get on at home and off at the stop closest to a sitter or vice versa. Small children get extremely confused and mistakes can be made when parents want to change a student's schedule. MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO KEEP YOUR CHLD'S BUS STOP THE SAME ALL YEAR. If your child has brought in a note to be picked up but forget and get on the bus, you will need to get your child at  their assigned stop. This is for the safety of the student.
 
If you have questions, you may call the Beth Cain @ 548-4464
Parent information regarding student drop off

Parents, who choose to meet their child at the bus stop, should plan to be at the bus stop 10-15 minutes prior to their child's scheduled drop off. Bus drivers must keep to a schedule and can not wait for you to arrive. Make a plan with your friends, neighbors and your child in the event you are not there by the time the bus arrives for drop off.  It is strongly suggested that you do a couple of trial runs between your home and the bus stop so your child knows how to get home in the event you are not at the stop on time. It is suggested you get to know the other parents and students at the bus stop so your child isn't afraid if you are not there when they get off the bus. Some parents have found setting their phone alarm in advance to remind them to go to the bus stop is helpful. 
Transportation

The following is from the Ohio Department of Education:

Pupil transportation service must be provided in Ohio for students in grades K-8 who live more than two miles from their school. Many school districts choose to transport students in high school, as well as students who live closer than two miles from their school, but these services are optional and at the discretion of the local school district and are not required by state law.

Transportation plans are designed and implemented by each district. This plan includes the designation of walk - in areas to school, identification of hazardous areas, the location of bus stops and the actual routing and planning of routes. Other issues, such as the ability of the school district to accommodate day care arrangements, alternative bus stops and length of time a student rides on a bus are also determined by the local school district. There are no administrative regulations or laws that limit these.

School transportation is a form of public transportation that is designed to be safe and efficient while serving as many students as possible. It is not an individualized transportation service. As in other public forms of transportation, there is little opportunity to alter or change schedules and routes to meet individual family circumstances.

This information must be available in the vehicle or readily accessible in the transportation office. All such information is strictly confidential.
 
17. Some electronic devices; cameras, laser pointers, etc. are not allowed on buses. The exception to this will be MP3 players, I-Pads, games and cell phones with headphones only for grades 5th through 12th. Texting is allowable, but no talking on cell phones will be permitted. Any device that includes a flash; this function is prohibited. These items will be removed and held by the driver. On the morning route, the device will be given to the building principal and discipline will follow.

Safety is very important when riding and driving a school bus. If a student's behavior becomes a problem by not following the above rules, bus riding privileges may be revoked.
