Required Bus Safety Training for Students
A state mandate requires that all students receive bus safety training and must pass a test in order to continue riding any regular, sport, or field trip bus.  The State of Minnesota has reaffirmed that bus riding is not a right, but rather a privilege.

The Elementary's bus safety training will be on Tuesday, September 11th.  The specific competencies include:
  • Understanding that riding the bus is a privilege, not a right.
  • Knowledge and understanding of district conduct and safety policies.
  • Demonstrate appropriate conduct on the bus.
  • Be able to explain the school bus danger zones.
  • Understanding safe loading and unloading procedure.
  • Demonstrating safe crossing procedures.
  • Proficiency in bus evacuation and emergency drills.
  • Students should be at the bus stop 5 minutes before the bus.
  • On the first day of school, the bus drivers ask that students come to their bus stop 10 minutes early.
  • All students who need to cross the road at their bus stop, please wait for the bus driver to signal you across.
  • Students must act responsibily and show respect for property at all bus stops.

Transportation Policy

All parents will need to fill out a Transportation Registration form indicating their student's two pick-up and two drop-off sites.  Any changes during the school year must be submitted in writing at least five days prior to the change.

If you have any questions concerning your student's transportation for the coming school year, please contact the Transportation Director's office at 634-1177.
