Bus Transportation to School
The School provides transportation for all students who live farther than 1 mile from school. The transportation schedule and routes are available by contacting the transportation coordinator at (937) 996-1511 ext 1227. We care about our student’s here at TV and want to make sure that they are aware of where they need to go after school. This also allows the teacher and your child to know what exit they should take at the end of the day.
Please remember that any transportation changes for your child should be made before school. If you are unsure of the bus that your child will need to ride, parents MUSTcontact the bus barn at (937) 996-1511 ext 1227 to ask which bus to ride. A note MUST be sent in with your child with the following information:Name of Student – Date – Instructions – Parent Signature.This note must get approved by the office, and the student will give it to the appropriate bus driver. A note is required,NOTa phone call. Students will NOTbe allowed to call home to find out what the arrangements are for the day.
Phone Calls: In case of emergencies, we will take messages for students. Phone calls can’t be transferred to classrooms during the hours of 8:00 am – 2:45 pm. Students may only ride assigned buses and must board and depart from the bus at assigned bus stops. Students will not be permitted to ride unassigned buses for any reason other than an emergency, except as approved by the Principal. The Principal may approve a change in a student’s regular assigned bus stop to address a special need, upon the principal’s approval of a note from a parent stating the reason for the request and the duration of the requested change.
Students who are riding to and from school on transportation provided by the School are required to follow all basic safety rules. This applies to school-owned buses as well as any contracted transportation. The driver may assign seating or direct students in any reasonable manner to maintain transportation safety.
Videos on School Buses
The Board of Education has installed video cameras on school buses to monitor student behavior. If a student misbehaves on a bus and his/her actions are recorded, the video will be submitted to the Principal and may be used as evidence of misbehavior.
Penalties for Infractions
A student who misbehaves on the bus shall be disciplined in accordance with the Student Discipline Code and may lose the privilege of riding on the bus.
Please refer to the Parent/Student Handbook for other information concerning transportation and rules. Students must comply with the while riding to and from school.
