Bus Safety

Student safety is our first priority — Please review these rules with your children:

  • The school bus is an extension of the classroom. Behave accordingly.
  • Be on time for your scheduled pickup.
  • Behave properly at the bus stop.
  • Stay back 15 feet from the road while waiting.
  • Students who cross the road must do so at least 15 feet in front of the bus AFTER receiving a hand signal from the driver.
  • The bus driver may assign students to specific seats.
  • Remain seated at all times.
  • Items allowed on the bus must fit comfortably on the student’s lap.
  • Keep the aisle clear of book bags, musical instruments, lunch boxes, etc.
  • No glass containers are allowed on the bus.
  • No animals, alive or dead, are allowed on the bus.
  • Speak quietly.
  • Do NOT use profane language.
  • Students should NOT be destructive.
  • Keep head, hands, and feet inside the bus.
  • State law requires that students get on, get off, and cross only when the bus is at a complete stop with the red light flashing.
  • Cooperate with the bus driver.

Driving and Parking

  • In general, there is no parking available for students at the Junior/Senior high school
  • Seniors are eligible for a lottery held each month for a limited number of student parking spaces.
  • Students parking on school grounds may have their vehicles towed and will be subject to disciplinary action

Student Drop-Offs

  • Parents driving their children to school are asked to avoid using bus loops prior to and after the school day.
  • Junior/Senior high school students should be dropped off either on West Street or in the parking lot adjacent to the gymnasium.
  • If you must drop your child off at the school itself, proceed to the back parking lot as directed.
  • Students may be dropped off only in the front parking lot of the Harry Hoag School.
  • To insure proper supervision and safety, do not drop your child off at the side or in back of the school.
