Policies and Procedures

Ridership Policy

The safety of the students riding our buses is always our first priority. We have lots of other priorities, but that one is always first and foremost.

No note - no ride

Students of LCES and LCH who wish to ride a different bus than they normally do(for a special occasion) are required to introduce themselves to the driver and present a written note to the driver from the student's parents. At this time, and until further notice, only one extra rider per regular bus rider is possible as we work within COVID guidelines.

We welcome guest riders warmly but we must ensure they have parental approval.

No note - no unscheduled stop

Students are discouraged from asking to be dropped off at alternate stops. Drivers have no way of verifying if such a drop-off is entirely safe. We will let a student off at an unscheduled stop if we have written permission from a parent. If the student will be getting off the bus at unscheduled stops on a regular or semi-regular basis during the year, then a general permission note is satisfactory. All parties are to be kept informed in writing of what is acceptable to the parents.

Absent Riders

Our drivers cannot be held responsible for riders who do not get on the bus. They will ask siblings and friends about absent riders, especially younger ones but they cannot account for students who do not get on the bus. Especially with smaller students, we work on the understanding that until they are in the custody of the bus driver, they are still in the custody of the school.
