SCHOOL BUS STOP VS TAXI SERVICE

SCHOOL BUS STOP VS TAXI SERVICE
Students are expected to be out at their designated bus stop waiting on the bus. Students are expected to be at designated pick-up points ten (10) minutes prior to the published stop time. Bus times may vary, allow ten (10) minutes after the published bus stop time before leaving the designated pick-up point or calling the transportation office.
 
Service to other students is delayed if buses have to wait on students. Therefore, drivers are instructed not to wait for students who are not at the bus stop on time.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:

Q: Can I call the office to change my student from a bus rider to a parent pick-up or walker?

A: Yes, any parent who chooses to pick-up or have their student walk can call the school. Allow enough time for the office to locate the student to relay the message. The office reserves the right to verify the identity of the caller. However, if the student boards the bus, the parent must go to the designated stop to get the student.

Q: Do I need to notify the transportation office or driver if my child is not riding the bus?

A: No, if your child is not out for the bus at the designated stop and time, the driver will not stop. If your child does not ride the bus in the afternoon the driver will not make that stop.

Q: Can I make a one or two day change to my child’s bus schedule?

A: Approval may be given if:

  • A transportation request form has been submitted one day prior by the parent of the child whose transportation is changing and,
  • Enough seating is available.

Q: Can I sign up for a bus if my child won’t ride the bus every day?

A: Yes, you can reserve a seat for your student on a bus if they will generally ride the bus. If they will only ride the bus few times a year, wait to schedule that transportation when a ride is needed.

Q: Why have these changes been implemented?
A:

1.) For the safety of all students.

2.) To avoid multiple phone calls and notes to the school office and teachers during the school day and at the last minute.

3.) To prevent students from experiencing the stress of not knowing their schedule and riding the wrong bus. These events are also stressful for parents.

4.) To provided consistency and efficiency in school bus routes which reduces costs and allows Wa-Nee Transportation to continue to provide extracurricular travel at no cost to the students.
