Yellow Bus Rider Rules (City and Rural)
[Students assigned to Metro Ride will follow rules established by Metro Ride.]
I. WHO CAN RIDE?
A. Only students assigned to a bus may ride that bus.
B. Students may only be picked up and dropped off at their residence or an assigned pick-up/drop-off point, except those students who have satisfied the District policy for transportation to a childcare provider. Approval for transportation to a childcare provider’s residence or assigned pick-up/drop-off point must meet the criteria outlined in the “Transportation to Accommodate Child Care Needs Form.”
C. A parent/guardian may request that a student be picked up or dropped off at a location other than the student's residence or child care provider’s residence; however, such request must be infrequent and follow this procedure:
1. The parent/guardian must call the bus company to determine that the request meets the District's requirement that a seat is available and that the location is on an existing bus route.
2. A note from the parent/guardian must be taken to the school office and signed by the principal giving permission for the change.
3. The signed note must be given to the driver when boarding the bus.
4. The following information must be on the note:
a. Place and address to be picked up or dropped off
b. Day and date the change will take place
c. Reason for the change
d. Parent/guardian signature
