Students are discouraged from bringing personal electronic devices to school and in some cases are restricted with punitive consequences relating to regulation number: 237 A.

Remember riding the school bus is a privilege that can be revoked if the rules are not followed. Bus conduct reports are generated by the school bus driver to alert parents and children about infractions of the rules. Ensure you go over these rules with your children so they are aware of what is expected of them when they ride a school bus.

State regulations mandate that no person may enter a school bus without prior authorization from the school district and bus driver. Refusal to disembark from the school bus after being ordered to do so is classified as a third-degree misdemeanor offense and subject to a penalty of up to $2,500.00 or one year in prison.
