At the beginning of each year, parents must provide a signed written note providing the physical address for students riding the bus to and from school. If there is a change for any reason, any day, parents must provide a dated note if they wish their children to exit the bus at a stop other than their own home or usual stop. The only exception to this policy is if a parent calls the school in an emergency and requests another stop for their child.
Riding the bus is a privilege. High standards of student behavior are required on the bus and at the bus stops. All passengers must accept the authority of the bus driver while on the bus. Students are responsible for their behavior going to and from the bus stops.
TK and Kindergarten Students:
In order to assure that your little ones arrive home safely to you at the end of their busy day, we want to let you know about our bus home drop off procedure. All TK and Kindergarten students must be met at the bus drop off by an adult. In the case that an adult is not at the bus drop off the following steps will be taken:
The child will be returned to the school and a staff member will take them to the office.
Parent/Guardians home and work will be called, including pagers and cell numbers.
Telephone numbers on their emergency list will be called.
Staff will try all numbers twice
If no adult can be reached, the child will be considered “abandoned” and the Sheriff Department will be called.
After the second occurence, bus transportation services will be suspended.
We appreciate your adherence to this very important safety procedure.
The Trinity Alps Unified School District acknowledges the need for responsible private drivers to provide transportation services for numerous school activities that otherwise would not exist without private support.
