In the AM, if there is an emergency, the parent may call the office (773-1560) to check for an available seat and a student may provide a note signed and dated by that parent or guardian ONLY. If a student shows up for the bus without written permission, the driver will call in to the Transportation Office for permission to transport and a call will be made to the parent. If there is no space available, another bus could be dispatched as long as it will not cause the other bus to be late to school.
In the PM, bus passes are to be used in emergency situations ONLY and must be obtained before the buses are due to depart the school. If there is no pass and it is time to depart the school, the child will be sent to their assigned bus.
If a pass is needed, a parent shall call the Transportation Office to check for an available seat on the bus they want their child to ride. (773-1560)
If a seat is available, a note shall be sent to school with the student. It shall be signed by the parent and dated. The school principal shall issue a bus pass if there is space available on the bus. The student will present this to the bus driver upon entering the bus.
Jr./Sr. High buses are full and most buses can not accept bus passes. It is STRONGLY advised, you make arrangements to have someone pick up your student at their home or bus stop.
