Consequences for student misconduct on the bus are progressive. Student s are suspended from riding the bus for increasingly longer periods of time as violations against safety rules are repeated. Depending on the nature of the violation, consequences such as suspension or expulsion from school may also be applied.
Students are not allowed to ride any other than assigned busses. Bus passes may be assigned to students who need to ride a different bus, as space permits. Written requests from a parent for bus passes must include the following details:
We are requesting that students use this bus pass form. Download, print then fill in and have the student this request to the office before school starts. No notes will be accepted after 10:00 a.m. The student presents the pass to the driver as s/he enters the bus. Bus passes are not issued during the first or last two weeks of school. A request is also necessary if a student needs to get off the bus at a bus stop other than the assigned stop. OMS students may not ride elementary school buses.
We encourage our students to ride the bus to reduce traffic congestion. However, it is understood that riding the bus is not always possible. If you need to drop off or pick up your child, we ask for your cooperation with the following procedures.
These guidelines reflect our top priority – the safety and welfare of your child. Please understand that when necessary, these procedures place safety as a priority over convenience.
