Proper Student Behavior Ensures Safety
School bus regulations are designed to maximize safe transportation for students to and from school and school-sponsored activities. In order to ensure their safety and the safety of others, students must understand the importance of proper behavior on the bus and at all bus stops.
- Students must use the same bus assignment five days a week. The exception is elementary students who have a parent's permission note signed by the principal. These students will be allowed alternate transportation on a space-available basis.
- Students shall comply with the bus driver’s requests or instructions.
- Bullying, racial or sexual harassment, or fighting on any KSD bus will result in loss of transportation services.
- Violations of other bus rules may also result in loss of transportation services.
- Students should arrive at the bus stop five (5) minutes before, but not more than ten (10) minutes before, the bus is scheduled to arrive.
- Students are required to wait off the traveled portion of the roadway, be courteous, not engage in unruly behavior, and respect the property of others.
- Secondary students are required to present their bus pass each time they board the bus. Route numbers are printed on the picture ID cards of eligible secondary students.Bus drivers review behavior expectations with students. A copy of the School Bus Guidelines handbook is available at any school. Video and audio recording systems are installed on all regular routes as an additional means to monitor and document student behavior.
Emergency Bus Routing
During snow, ice, and other emergency conditions, school hours and bus route service may be limited. Information regarding emergency school closures is broadcast on most radio and TV stations and the Public Schools Emergency Communications System (PSECS)
If a bulletin pertaining to your school is not included in media broadcasts or the PSECS website, then your school is in normal session.
