Transportation FAQ

Q:What is STOP FINDER?

A:It is a new software program we have that allows parents to join via email, and install an app on their phone to get message alerts concerning their child's bus, ie: if the bus is late, if the bus is re-routing due to construction, etc. instead of a automated phone call you will receive an alert immediately
Q:Why can't my child ride whatever bus they want?

A:there are several reasons: 1) in an emergency it is important to know who is on the bus so we can contact the parents/guardians. 2) in an accident, if your child got on a different bus, we would be searching for them at the accident scene and using resources that we didn't need to. 3) students sometimes get on other buses so they can harass other students, making sure they ride their home bus this controls this problem. 4.) the students home bus driver gets to know your student and their needs and has better relationships with them. 
Q: Can students eat on the bus?

A: No, it is not allowed  for a couple of reasons. 1. other students on the bus may have a life threatening allergy to something someone brings on the bus. 2. a student may choke on the food/gum and the driver may be unaware.
Q: Why don’t school buses have seat belts?

A: The occupant protection system found in today’s school buses—is called compartmentalization and works extremely well to protect school bus passengers. NHTSA finds that lap belts not only provide little, if any, benefit on large school buses, but also could induce serious injury to young passengers. The NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) report provides strong evidence that lap belts are not a good form of crash protection for children in school buses.

Q: How can I become a school bus driver?

A: Contact the transportation department or the district and apply. We offer free training to approved applicants. We are currently looking for sub drivers most drive times would be the afternoon routes and you would be able to have your children ride the bus you are driving.
