Transportation Parent Information 2015-16

Welcome to an exciting new school year! Part of your child’s day involves getting to and from school through our transportation system. Your child may also ride a school or activity bus for field trips.

In an effort to secure the safety and well-being of all students, the following School Bus Expectations have been established. Please remember that riding a school bus is a privilege, not a right. We also encourage parents to accompany their child/children to their assigned stop.

We ask that students arrive at their assigned stop 10 minutes prior to the scheduled bus stop time. The bus rules and consequences adhere to the Union County Public Schools Board of Education, Policy 4-3 Code of Student Conduct for elementary, middle, and high school students.
