Bus Policy

Busing Guidelines

Parents/Guardians,

Every year questions are asked regarding transportation.   Please note in the below policies that elementary students who live beyond 1.5 miles from the school are eligible to ride the bus.  Those students who qualify to ride a bus are to be dropped off and picked up at their regularly assigned bus stop.  Transporting students to daycare or non-related school activities is not allowed.

There must be a minimum of ten students for an established bus route.  If students qualify for a bus and the route does not meet this requirement, a bus will not be provided. In this situation, parents may be reimbursed for transporting their child/children.

We appreciate our Transportation Department and the fabulous work they do.  If you would like to review our busing policies and procedures, you can locate this on Weber School District’s website under Departments/Transportation.

******************************************************************************Busing Procedures

Due to liability and safety concerns, the district strictly adheres to the busing procedure set forth by the Weber School District, the Utah State Office of Education and Risk Management.

The procedure states that school bus drivers are not authorized to allow eligible students, those who are assigned to their bus route, to be dropped off or picked up at unauthorized bus stops nor to allow students not assigned to their bus route to ride the school bus.  Ineligible students, those who do not qualify for busing services, are also not allowed to ride the school bus to or from school.

Transporting students to such activities as parties, scouts, sleepovers, achievement days, piano lessons, daycare, etc. will not be allowed.  The school bus is only to be used for transporting eligible students to and from their registered residence.

The minimum number of general education students required to establish a route is ten: the minimum number of students with disabilities is five.
