Monroe-Woodbury Elementary School Bus Safety Parent Handbook


Bus Stops - Most bus stops are at neighborhood intersections. Elementary students walk up to 1/2 mile to school and to bus stops.

Babysitter Policy - You must choose a sitter who lives within your school's attendance zone. Please note that the sitter arrangements can be a.m., p.m. or both, but they must be every day in the afternoon. We cannot transport to different locations on different days.

Clothing/Bookbags - For safety reasons, please provide a bookbag for your child's belongings. Loose items can cause injuries and tempt students to reach under the bus to retrieve things. Please choose jackets and coats without draw strings and please avoid the "yellow raincoat" which may not be visible to the bus driver alongside the bus.

All objects including musical instruments, must fit on the child's lap. Absolutely no animals, fish, or sharp objects are allowed. Also any sports equipment such as hockey sticks or baseball bats, must be carried in equipment bags.

Dropoff Procedure - In the afternoon, when at the ordinary time, drivers are expected to drop students off whether parents are present or not (except for children with disabilities). Please make arrangements and discuss with your child what he/she should do if a parent does not meet the bus. If you do meet the bus and your child must cross the road, please cross the road with him/her, following the bus driver's signal.

Inclement Weather - On icy and snowy days, please check the District website or listen to your radio station.

Please do not call the Bus Garage. Phone lines at the garage must be kept open for critical calls.

Bus Stop Pickup Procedure - It is important that drivers observe students as they approach the bus stop in the morning. Please arrange to have your child at the stop 5 minutes before ordinary pickup time.

If your child is late, please do not let him/her run to catch the bus. The driver may not see him/her and might pull away just as your child reaches the bus. For this same reason, please do not try to transfer your child to the bus along the route if he/she misses the bus.

Safety Drills - Our District has an extensive bus safety program which includes classroom and on-the-bus safety drill instructions, special programs, evacuation drills, and a number of incentive programs.

Safety Rules - All students are expected to:

  1. Follow the driver's instructions the first time given.
  2. Not yell, scream, or curse on the bus.
  3. Remain seated, keeping arms inside the bus.
  4. Not eat or drink anything on the bus.
  5. On small buses, all students (K-12) are expected to wear their seat belts while riding. On large buses, we suggest our passengers buckle up, but leave the decision up to their parents.
