Parent Bus Stop Etiquette:

  • Please do not impede the movement of the bus.
  • Please wait until after the bus leaves to pull away in your personal vehicle. (It is safer for any students still in the area.)

  • Have students at the bus stop five minutes prior to the bus arrival time.
  • Please do not chase the bus.

  • Get to know the other parents at your student's stop.
  • Familiarize your students with the bus stop location and the walking path to it.
  • Coordinate “walking pools” where students walk in groups to the bus stop.
