General Bus Transportation Information
The buses are scheduled for specific routes and times. The bus company issues a letter in the opening school information. If a teacher intends to have a child remain after school, he/she should notify the child in advance and the child should be given the opportunity to notify his/her parents. There is a late bus at approximately 3:40, Tuesday through Thursday, for Chapter 220 students. There are no late buses for district resident students. If a student wishes to take a different bus at the end of the school day, he/she must bring a parent permission note to the office in the morning to have it approved and then will give the note to the bus driver upon boarding the bus. A student may not ride a different bus if he/she forgets a note, or decides during the day to go to a friend’s house after school. PHONE REQUESTS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.
Teachers supervise bus loading at the end of the school day. They remain on duty until the departure of the last bus.
After School/Late Bus Transportation
There is a late bus scheduled after school at 3:40 p.m., Tuesday through Thursday, for Chapter 220 students only. District resident students are required to have their own transportation home if they stay after school for academic or extracurricular activities.
There is also a later athletic bus provided for non-resident special education and Chapter 220 students only. This bus will transport student athletes after practices and games. There are no buses provided for spectators at our games.
Students are expected to follow the Bayside Middle School Code of Conduct while on the bus. Students may lose their after school privileges if they do not abide by the guidelines outlined.
