            The primary purpose of school buses is to transport students from home to school and return safely.  To accomplish this purpose, a discipline plan is used on the buses.  The plan includes rules and consequences.

            Students who ride a bus will load and unload in the bus parking lot of the school.  The bus parking lot is designated for loading and unloading buses.  No vehicles are allowed in the bus parking lot at anytime. *(exceptions for Kindergarten parents at the beginning of the school year and for Pre-K parents)

            Because of the time change for our school day (8:30 – 3:00), bus times may be different.  If you have questions please call Mr. Freeman at school (453-8185).

RULES

1.  Remain in your seat.
2.  Keep hands, feet, and objects to yourself.
3.  Do not extend hands or arms out of the window.
4.  Loud talking that disturbs driver or others is not allowed.
5.  Do not bring toys or prohibited items on bus.
6.  Disrespect to bus driver will not be tolerated.

CONSEQUENCES

First reported incident by bus driver – office visit and bus discipline
letter to be signed by parents.
Second – parent contact, assigned seat and office visit.
Third – Two days off bus and parent contact.
Fourth – Five days off bus and parent contact.
Fifth – Ten days off bus and parent contact. 
Any bus incident reported beyond five could lead to permanent dismissal off the school bus.  Any severe act or misconduct is an immediate suspension.

 

 

CAR RIDERS

Car Riders

Traffic Safety and Procedures

            Our school has a wonderfully long driveway.  However, we have many parents who bring and pick up their children.  Our main driveway has three (3) lanes; two lanes in, one lane out.  For morning drop off, all vehicles should use the right lane all the way to the circle.  For afternoon pick up, two lanes in are designed for double stacking.  This means you may exit Piney Mountain Church Road onto either of these lanes.  As you approach the traffic circle, you will merge into one lane.  Please follow the signs and be courteous to other drivers.  You will be directed to stop your car in the circle to pick up your child.  Your child will come to your car from the cafeteria.  This is the only designated drop off and pick up point.  You may not park and leave your car during arrival or dismissal time.  If you plan to pick up your child at school, please request a dash card on “Meet Your Teacher Day.”  This procedure is designed for the safety of all children.

Instructions for Dash Card Use

          You must display an official Ellenboro School Dash Card to be allowed to pick your child up.  Vehicles without dash cards may be asked to park for further verification.  Please follow all car rider guidelines so that all students will be safe.

Arrival Time:   8:30 a.m.  Students should be in their seat. Regular drop off time begins at 7:30 a.m.

Dismissal Time:   3:00 p.m.  announcements/all students exit 

Please be on time for car rider pick up.  All students who have not been picked up by 3:30 p.m. will wait in the hallway and parents must come in and sign them out.  Please do not call and ask us to send them out.  The safety of your child is our main concern.

 

 


PERMISSION TO RIDE A DIFFERENT BUS/CAR

            If a student is going to ride a different bus or ride the same bus and get off at a different location, or ride home in a different car, a written request must be provided.  All information should be listed on the request with your signature.  We expect written permission for your child to change his/her way of going home except in emergency situations.  A student WILL NOT be allowed to make a change to a different bus or get off at a different stop or ride in a different car without parent permission.  Please understand that phone calls during the day to change transportation for your child are a major disruption and should be avoided except in an emergency.
