Bus Procedure for Friends Riding Home w/Friends

Here is the process we are being asked to follow for students riding the bus with a friend:

1. The student riding a bus must be a bus student.

2. Approvals/requests should be sent from both parents to the principal requesting child “a” rides home with child “b”.

3. The principal approves and advises transportation

4. Transportation will advise the driver they will have an additional student riding home that day… please send me the name of both students when letting us know.

5. Preferably this is done more then ½ hour prior to pick up so we have time to advise the drivers.
