Transportation FAQ

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: Why does my child have to walk to school?

A: The Board of Education policy is that transportation to a school will be provided to students who live outside of a one mile radius of their attendance area school. There are exceptions to this policy if it concerns safety?

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. 

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: Can students bring animals on the bus?

A: No. We cannot transport any live animals, this includes hermit crabs, gold fish, hamsters, puppies, cats, snakes unless the animal is a service animal, they are not allowed on the school bus.
