When a bus is stopped (four red lights are flashing-two in the front and two in the rear) on a street or road which has fewer than four lanes, all traffic approaching the bus form either direction must stop at least ten feet from the front or the rear of the bus and remain stopped until the bus begins to move or the bus driver signals motorists to proceed.
If a bus is stopped on a street or road which has four or more lanes, only traffic proceeding in the same direction as the bus must stop.
Students that live within 1.5 miles from their school of attendance in grades 7-12 and within .5 miles for grades PS-6 are not eligible for transportation.
Starting 2015-2016 school year, only one pick up and one drop off location will be permitted. The bus garage must be notified at least 3 days in advance of any permanent changes. This policy is for the safety of our students.
