From the Handbook. Please read carefully, especially if you children are ever car riders!
A student is assigned and registered through his/her local school district transportation department in order to ride a school bus. Proper conduct is required at all times to enjoy the privilege of bus transportation. Buses drop off and pick up in the Parish Center Parking Lot.
Any change in a student’s transportation plans must be placed in writing and submitted to the school on the day of change. The child will be placed on the school bus unless the school has been notified in writing of the change of transportation. Please make every effort to avoid last minute transportation changes.
Before School – Parents assume responsibility for the safe crossing of students in the morning. Students may not arrive at the school before 7:40 A.M. Any student arriving prior to 7:40 A.M. will be assigned to the Extended Care Program and the parent/guardian charged accordingly. (See Extended Care section)
After School – At the end of the school day, a faculty member crosses the walkers at Philadelphia Avenue and Second Street. Any time a walker will be using another method of transportation the school must be notified in writing on that day.
