2019-2020 School Year WISD BUS RIDER GUIDELINES (including but not limited to)
Waiting on the Bus
If a student does not ride for 5 days in a row we will no longer stop at that bus stop. Parents will need to call Transportation to have the stop reinstated.
Boarding the Bus
Conduct on the Bus
Departing the Bus
Crossing the Street
Guest Student Rider:
Students must obtain a pass from the office if they wish to be a guest rider on a bus they do not ride on. (please review the bus list for buses that do not allow guest riders due to crowding), Or if they wish to get off at a different stop on a bus they do ride.
Band Instruments, Athletic Equipment and Personal Belongings:
All personal belongings such as backpacks, athletic equipment, books, class projects or musical instruments MUST be able to be held in student’s lap or under the seat. Items MUST be kept from the aisles. Due to interfering with the driver’s ability to see out of the back window. Students with larger instruments will likely be assigned a seat in the front of the bus to protect the students in the aisle seats.
Each driver will determine the use of electronic devices (age and bus behavior will play into this decision). However, students are NOT allowed to share electronic devices with other students. Disciplinary action may be taken if a student is caught sharing an electronic device with another student. Students MUST wear headphones/earbuds if they listen to music. Absolutely, no pictures or videos may be taken on the bus!
Bus Route Changes:
Due to growth in our school district, routes may change throughout the school year. We understand constancy is important however we cannot predict the number of new bus riders coming into the district. Please keep in mind that we try to make all routes the most efficient and safest for your student and the driver. Please be patient with the driver and transportation department should any changes occur, as we have to adjust to the changes also.
