Safety - The Parents' Role

Transporting children is a shared responsibility between home and school. The district is responsible for children once they board the bus. Families are responsible for the safety and supervision of their children to and from the designated stop as well as while they are waiting for school transportation.

The district also asks parents to reinforce with their children the importance of obeying the school bus rules. Such rules ensure the safety and welfare of all riders. If a child repeatedly violates these rules, thus jeopardizing everyone's safety, the student may ultimately be denied the privilege of riding the bus. Thus, parents' and guardians' support for behaving appropriately while in transit is essential.

If you have any questions or problems or concern related to the bus, you are encouraged to write the driver a note or to phone 740-223-4398 to reach the bus garage. Please try not to interrupt the bus schedule by talking directly with the driver while he or she is on the route.
