When a bus is requested to return to a school building, the following procedures will be enforced: 1. If a student misses the bus during the scheduled pick-up time, that student will not be picked up again unless the building office requests it. The expectation is that all students will board during their original pick-up time. 2. If a student is already on the bus and a parent/guardian requests that they be brought back to their school building to unload.The bus driver will only do so when authorized by the school office personnel. 3. If returning to school to pick up a student, the student must be ready for loading upon arrival on the bus. 4. If returning a student to school, all students will be instructed to report directly to the office first, and then they will be released to their parent/guardian. 5. If a student pick-up or drop-off request is made at Goldendale Primary School, the student will not be loaded or unloaded from the school bus without the presence of school personnel.
If your child rides a school bus, please share these precautions:
1. Form a line off the roadway from where the bus stops. 2. Do not push while waiting for or getting on the bus. 3. Be careful and considerate of younger children. 4. Never run out in front or back of the bus. 5. Obey the bus driver. He or she is looking out for the safety of the passenger. 6. Always wait for the driver to signal you before crossing in front of the bus.
1. The driver is in full charge of the bus and pupils. Pupils must obey the driver promptly and willingly. 2. No pupil shall be allowed to leave the bus at a different stop other than their regular one unless they have written permission from school authorities. 3. Outside of ordinary conversation, classroom conduct must be observed. 4. No pupil shall at any time extend his or her head, hands, or arms out of the windows, whether the school bus is in motion or standing still. 5. Pupils are to remain seated while the bus is in motion and they are not to get on or off the bus until it has come to a full stop. 6. Pupils must cross the highway only in front of the school bus and never behind it. 7. Student misconduct on a bus or at a bus stop will be sufficient reason to discontinue providing bus transportation for the students involved. 8. Parents of students damaging school buses will be responsible for proper reimbursement to the school district. 9. Student discipline will be handled by the Time To Teach system used in our schools. Refocuses given on the bus goes towards academy each week. If needed, further discipline will be a 3-day suspension off the school bus, all the way to a temporary suspension or a permanent suspension, pending a hearing.
