General Bus Guidelines
All pupils must behave appropriately as passengers of a school bus. Clearly understood and well-enforced rules are necessary for the successful management of pupils who ride school buses.
Students who disobey the bus rules will receive a written warning and the warning will be distributed to the parents, administration and driver. The administrator will take appropriate action as indicated on the warning form. On the second offense the student will be suspended from bus privileges for 10 school days if the student is found to be responsible after the administrator's investigation. After a third offense the student will be suspended from bus privileges for 20 school days.
Procedure to Request a Bus Stop Change or Addition
A parent request to change or add another bus stop must be made in writing to the building principal. The principal will then copy the request and submit it to the bus company liaison. A meeting will take place to determine the possibility of accommodating the request. The decision will be communicated to the parents within ten school days of the request. A parent will have the right to appeal to the Superintendent of Schools. If the request involves a safety issue, not a convenience issue, the superintendent will confer with the Wrentham Police Department. The superintendent’s decision will be final.
