KWRL has created this page to highlight the importance of transportation for Kindergarten student(s). For a Kindergarten student (and Parent!), riding a school bus is filled with both excitement and anticipation, but at the same time it can feel overwhelming and quite frankly very intimidating. Whether you’re a first time kindergarten parent or you have done this before, we hope the information on this page can help answer any questions or concerns you may have. Below are a few safe guards put in place to help understand what to expect on the first few days.
Kindergarten Transportation Video
Identification Bands - During the first week of school, Kindergarten Students will be issued Yellow Identification Bands. Teachers will attach bands to the students back packs. This will help the school bus driver identify the student.
Seat Assignment on Bus - The first few rows on each bus will have yellow tape designated for all kindergarten students. This will help the bus driver keep close supervision of the student during transportation.
Parent meet and greet - For the safety of the student. Please ensure a parent, guardian or designated person is with the kindergarten student at the bus stop before and after school. As a safety precaution, the bus driver will not release the student after school unless the responsible party is present at the stop.
