Bus Riders

Due to safety considerations NO child may be checked out during Protected Time from 2:15 to 2:45. Students needing to change transportation other than the transportation they regularly ride must have written permission from their parent. Administrator’s signature is required for ALL bus transportation changes.  This note must have a daytime phone number listed and be brought to the main office during homeroom.

Bus students arrive at the front of the school and are greeted by North Springs Staff. They report to the cafeteria if they eat breakfast. Students that do not eat breakfast will report to assigned areas. Staff will be on duty to assist students to their assigned areas.

At the end of the day, students remain in their classroom/ hallway until their bus number is called. The buses load at the front of the school. 
 
If your child(ren) is brought back by the bus, your child needs to be picked up by 4:00 in the front office. If your child is not picked up by 4:00, the child will be placed in the cafeteria with an adult and there will be a $10 late fee assessed per child per late pick up.

Rules of Conduct for Bus Students

The bus schedule (time, place, etc.) is given at the opening of school and to new students at registration.  Students needing to ride a bus other than the bus they regularly ride must have written permission from their parent and an administrator’s signature.  This note must have a daytime phone number listed and be brought to the main office during homeroom.  This allows us to verify the transportation change for that day.  This service is based on bus space available.  Students experiencing problems on a bus should contact an administrator for help.  In order to make the buses as pleasant and as safe as possible, please follow these rules:

  1. Stay seated at all times.

  2. Keep arms and head inside the bus window.

  3. Outside of ordinary conversation, classroom conduct is to be observed.
