A NOTE FROM TRANSPORTATION
School transportation is a privilege and bus safety regulations must be followed. School principals are responsible for the student while on the bus and reserve the right to resolve discipline problems that occur between home and the school. Bus drivers are charged with maintaining proper student conduct which may include assigning individual seats. Students are expected to conduct themselves on buses in the same manner as in the classroom.
With the continued growth of our community, bus ridership has also grown. The majority of our afternoon routes are at or near bus capacity. Therefore, transportation will not be able to accommodate students riding the bus home with other when the student is not assigned to the bus route. This would include sending your child home on another student’s bus for play dates, sleep over’s, group projects, sports practices, etc.
In the rare instance that you have a last minute emergency and need your child to ride the bus home with someone else, please call your child’s school to get permission so the school can inform the bus driver of the change.
For safety reasons, parents and other adults will not be allowed to board the bus. If you have discipline or scheduling concerns, please do not attempt to discuss these during the loading or off‐ loading process as it distracts the driver’s attention from the students. Direct any questions concerning school bus transportation to the LISD Transportation Department.

K THROUGH 2ND GRADE
The safety of our students will always be first. To protect our students the transportation policy for 2nd graders and below is as follows. It is the parent’s responsibility to make sure the students get to and from the students designated bus stop. Drivers will hold these students on the bus until an authorized adult is present to prevent them from getting lost on the way home. If a parent wishes their student to get off the bus without an adult present, they should have a permission note registered at the transportation department or if an authorized adult is not at the bus stop, the student will be returned to school for parent pick up. You may also have an older sibling walk home with the student.
