Bus Transportation . . . A Privilege
Bus students must obey the driver, sit in their designated seats and talk softly. Riding the bus is a privilege and improper conduct may result in temporary suspension from the bus. The Leon County District Code of Student Conduct will be sent home at the beginning of the school year. Parents and students should read and review these rules.
Leon County School Bus Rules
Children who live more than two miles from the school may ride the bus. A child may not ride the bus unless he/she is an assigned bus student or on a field trip. No one may ride another bus without a parent note and administrator/designee approval.
Students must follow bus rules:
- Obey the driver.
- Stay seated and face the front.
- Talk quietly.
- Keep hands, arms, feet, and objects to yourself.
- Do not use inappropriate language, put downs, or racial slurs.
- Remain orderly while waiting for the bus.
- Wait until it is your turn to load or unload.
The bus driver is in charge on the bus. If the rules are broken, the bus driver will give a warning or a bus referral, depending on the seriousness of the offense. When a student gets a bus referral, parents receive a copy. Consequences may include, but not limited to: giving an apology, loss of special privilege, assigned bus seat, or suspension from the bus. Students who use foul language, throw things, fight, threaten others, or disobey the bus driver repeatedly will be suspended from the bus.
